Ok, so there's a server A. This server is only accesible from another server B, with a given IP address. I want to install OpenVPN server on B so that clients connecting to this VPN can access server A as well.

If I understand correctly, the OpenVPN should be bridged, am I correct? Any advise on how to do this? An online tutorial maybe? I'm using Ubuntu 12.10.

Thanks, Sammy

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

If ServerB is only accessible from ServerA's IP due to an ACL or policy-based route, then you'll need to configure ServerA as a L3 endpoint and enable NAT. This way, all requests from VPN clients will look like they are from ServerA
