|I am trying to set up a VPN access point using my wireless interface. The idea is that any computer that attaches to the wireless interface is automatically on the VPN. I have installed the OpenVPN server in bridged mode. I have set the wireless interface as an access point using hostapd (with bridge=br0 in the config). Now I am a bit lost as to how to proceed.
# Setting up OpenVPN in bridged mode
# WAN on eth0
# LAN on wlan0
config_eth0="192.168.1.205 netmask 255.255.255.0 brd 192.168.1.255"
routes_eth0="default via 192.168.1.1"
dns_servers_eth0=( "192.168.1.1" )
# Create bridge that hostapd will attach to
# Config of wlan0 as access point
server-bridge 10.8.0.1 255.255.255.0 10.8.0.10 10.8.0.20
I have the right boot order as well: openvpn starts first, net.br0 second & hostapd last
Just in case, I have already used the wlan0 as an access point and I have set up the routes so that traffic through wlan0 gets directed to eth0.
Any suggestions on how to proceed would be helpful. I am feeling like OpenVPN might not be the right tool for this.
