    Default OpenVPN site to client (best and easiest case)

    Scenario: Untangle is at the edge of the network with a public static IP address on the external interface. If you have a dynamic IP address from your ISP, you will need to set up the dyndns or other means.

    Remote client users have XP PCs.

    Solution: Just follow the OpenVPN wizard and finish configuring the OpenVPN. Create the VPN user and issue out the OpenVPN client. Everything should work.

    If you want to access resources via their name instead of IP address, you will need to go into the OpenVPN, Advanced, and export the DNS, and DNS Overrride, input the DNS server's IP address. You will need to use the fqdn when trying to access via their name.

    Extra info: If the remote clients use Vista or Windows 7, you will need to install the OpenVPN as an administrator and run it as an administrator.

    Mac users, you can use tunnelblick.
    to be understood, you must first understand.

    And if you want a headache... try to do a site to site tunnel with a bridge mode Untangle.

    Yes, it can be done. Yes, it is a PITA. And Yes, we've answered how to do it 1000 times on these forums and no doubt tomorrow someone else will come asking.

    So if you've landed here and you've got Untangle in bridge mode. Please Please PLEASE!

    For the love of all that is Holy! Please! Use the search feature... you've got some very frazzled Untangle veterans around here that will thank you profusely.
