I just tried to create a tap0 device the same way I created a bridge0
device and it seems to be working. I.e. I did the following:

on server
ifconfig tap0 create
ifconfig bridge0 create
brconfig bridge0 add rtk0 add tap0 up

start openvpn using tap0

on client
ifconfig tap0 create
start openvpn using tap0

This seems to work now (The OpenVPN client connests to the server and
is assigned the correct IP address), though there are some issues I
still need to sort out. I.e. I don't seem to be able to ping devices
on the LAN i.e. the clients tap0 device gets the address: (Correct) and the servers rtk0 device has the address: I cant ping the server at the moment, but I will look
into that.
