    OpenVPN certain traffic

    Here's a basic layout of what I have:

    Remote server in Chicago is mail server, backup server and public facing
    FTP server due to higher bandwidth.

    I want the remote server to VPN back to a local server so that on the
    local network it is addressable on the internal network (say it has an
    address of 10.8.0.6) and then nightly a script will go and rsync data from
    local server to the remote.

    The problem right now is that if I open the VPN connection external
    connections stop, so no one can FTP into the box, and SMTP connections (as
    well as webmail) get refused because the system is no longer listening on
    the external address

    If it matters the server is Ubuntu 10.04.3 LTS

    Don't give the remote an address in your local subnet. Just use a different address space and set up the tunnel between the remote server and the local backup device.
