When I finish off the OpenVPN stuff (currently still debugging, but getting
close) you WILL be able to do this with OpenVPN and a m0n0 at each end.
However, before you leap up and down with excitement let me advise you that
this is a far from sensible thing to do unless you have a lot of bandwidth
between the two m0n0 boxes. It is considered very poor design to use a
remote bridge (which is what you are describing) because there is a lot of
broadcast traffic on a LAN - especially if you use the default config of
those dreadful Windows boxes that every body insists on using. All of this
traffic has to be forwarded to the other side and may well disadvantage the
real traffic that you want to send.
Even if you do have a lot of bandwidth (and 'a lot' depends on how much
traffic you really have) OpenVPN has limitations on the size of its buffers
for handling broadcast and multicast packets that may cause stability
As part of the OpenVPN-on-m0n0 project I am writing some documentation that
describes how to configure the system for different scenarios and I will
document how to do this at that time.
Perhaps if you describe what it is you are trying to do, and why, the list may
be able to come up with a better solution.
