I'm currently running an openvpn server using routed mode (ubuntu 12.04) Because I have written a network application that uses broadcast, I think I have no choice but to go to bridged mode. However, I'm not sure how to change the interface config, because on the tutorials I found, it's always a little bit different (no loopback)..
My current /etc/network/interfaces :
auto lo iface lo inet loopback address 127.0.0.1 netmask 255.0.0.0 auto eth0 iface eth0 inet static address 178.xx.xx.xx netmask 255.255.255.0 broadcast 178.xx.xx.xx network 178.xx.xx.xx gateway 178.xx.xx.xx
I need to add a bridge, but I'm afraid I will make a mistake and I won't have access to my webserver, ssh server and mail server. Can someone help me with this?
Thanks in advance!
