Openvpn settings for Untangle with Ethernet Bridging

Post by rob.hunt.gjb » Thu Mar 19, 2020 12:55 pm

Hi, I'm desperate here and calling anyone to help.

We have an Avaya IP500 pbx on site.
I have IP 1608 phones that connect fine locally.
The plan is to use the phones remotely.

The staff have laptops, the idea is we OpenVPN to our Untangle server, then use network bridging from OpenVPN to the Ethernet port the phone is connected.

My test setup is 2x Laptops - Laptop A is the Staff laptop / Laptop B is pretending to be the phone (for testing only).

Laptop A connects fine to the OpenVPN and bridged to the Ethernet port appears fine - but no data is being relayed. From what I can see online I need to change some of the advanced config on Untangle, but don't have the know how.

PBX - IP 192.168.10.200
Untangle box - 192.168.10.49
Public IP - x.x.x.x
IP Pool - 172.16.148.0/24
Laptop A IP - 172.16.148.130

Please any help.... I've read online about changing to Tap and server-bridge but when I try it things break.

I've spoken to Untangle, and they say they don't support any changes in the Advanced Config page. Help!
