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.
