Default Routing through an Openvpn tunnel.


I have a tunnel as described in openvpn.man,
Example 2, between my home and work machines.
"ping" from
"ping" from
succeed as expected.

Routing from the LAN attached to does
not work yet.

Near the end of openvpn(8) dated 3 August 2005,
James Yonan wrote,
jy> "Routing:
... enable TUN packet forwarding through the firewall:
iptables -A FORWARD -i tun+ -j ACCEPT
which suggests that iptables is involved in routing.

Whereas in the Shorewall mailing list, Tom Eastep
"You don't specify routing in Shorewall or using
iptables. You specify routing via OpenVPN."

So I'm left with two questions.

* What is the iptables command above doing?

* What does Tom mean by "... specify routing
via OpenVPN."?

Thanks for any ideas, ... Peter E.
