    OpenVPN Server with nm-managed wifi uplink?

    Hello all!

    I'm attempting to set up a VPN server on my box using the nifty HowTo posted here: https://help.ubuntu.com/10.10/server...C/openvpn.html.

    My setup is as follows:
    wifi0 --> Internet; managed entirely via nm-applet (NetworkManager)
    Where I'm running into trouble is in the creation of a bridge interface (br0) to bridge future VPN clients to my local network.

    The guide(s) say that I need to screw around in /etc/network/interfaces to setup br0 and [eth0/wifi0] accordingly. The problem is that when I specify a configuration of any sort for wifi0 (my only choice for a network uplink), it disables nm and I am unable to configure my wifi in any sort of sane way after reboot...

    Any tips?

    Further info: this "server" doesn't move, and always always connects to the same wifi hotspot that is also nailed in place.


    Tx Ubuntu community!

    Has there really been nobody out there that's set up a VPN server with a wifi uplink?
