 Date:  Sun, 11 Mar 2007 14:30:46 -0500

So, are you saying that if I *have* to put multiple subnets on the  
LAN segment, I should expect the firewall rules anomalies I have  
encountered and simply check "Bypass firewall rules..." to short- 
circuit those anomalies?

In my OpenVPN server application, I am not aware of any other way to  
configure things other than creating multiple subnets on a segment,  
ie. the OpenVPN server acting as a gateway to the virtual subnet.

I appreciate the guidance.
