    Default OpenVPN & VLANs - server config problem

    Hi Guys,

    I'm trying to set up OpenVPN to do the following:
    • Tunneling is done at layer 2 (tap)
    • There are several client groups, none of whom I can trust
    • The groups don't trust each other either
    • Each client group needs to be segregated on the server, in a way that I can trunk
    • Each client connecting to the server is assigned to a group based on their authentication information
    • There can only be one server instance
    My current idea for achieving this is to put each client group into a separate vlan, but the problem is that one server instance == one tap interface, i.e. all client groups share the same tap interface, and therefore I can't find a way to separate them.

    I am more than happy to do some more scripting to achieve this if required, but at the moment I'm stumped as to what I should do.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks,
    Erayd

    Not based on OpenVPN, but could be an alternative.

    Sorry - thanks for the suggestion, but that completely misses the point of what I'm trying to do.

    Note also that OpenVPN is basically a requirement - it would take a *very* compelling reason for me to ditch it and replace it with something else.
