A box running OpenVPN server and few Vagrant virtual machines


I would like to access Vagrant boxes directly from VPN clients as regular machines, and not on only few forwarded ports.


OpenVPN has interface tun0:

tun0      Link encap:UNSPEC  HWaddr 00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00  
          inet addr:  P-t-P:  Mask:
          RX packets:110348 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
          TX packets:89923 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
          collisions:0 txqueuelen:100 
          RX bytes:18322866 (18.3 MB)  TX bytes:16651955 (16.6 MB)

Vagrant is configured with public_networks with specific ip:

config.vm.network "public_network", :bridge => "tun0", ip:"", :auto_config => "false", :netmask => ""

But it does not work, i guess because i cannot bridge Vagrant to OpenVpn interface?. From the logs:

DEBUG network: Normalized configuration: {:auto_config=>"false", :bridge=>"tun0", :mac=>nil, :nic_type=>nil, :use_dhcp_assigned_default_route=>false, :ip=>"", :netmask=>"", :protocol=>"tcp", :id=>"9d8e9f11-8e10-442d-92a3-7c463e14cf24", :adapter=>2}

Should i somehow bridge tun0 via Virtualbox? Or is this not doable? I've tried doing it something like this:

v.customize ["modifyvm", :id, "--nic1", "bridged", "--bridgeadapter1", "tun0"]

Should i create a virtual interface eth1 (i cannot use bridge0 as it is a public ip), and bridge to it Vagrant, and then create routing rules for OpenVPN server?
