What i would like to have:

Connection 1:
Client from internal Lan (10.0.0.0) -> Firewall (Proxy)
10.0.0.0/192.168.0.0 -> www (*ouch*)

Connection 2:
Client with WLAN external (192.168.0.0) -> Firewall (10.0.0.0) -> Using
resources from internal LAN (10.0.0.0)

on connection 2, i think i need bridging with the ip-adress from my
internal lan, as otherwise openvpn wouldn't let me use the internal
resources like printers etc.


The WLAN-Card is on a clients side using Network 192.168.0.0. My favourite
would be having both connections on 2 nics using a bridge...

Isn't this correct?


Thanks,
Roger
