Re: openvpn bridge using NetBSD 4.0(i86) and XP?

I'm looking to hook up a VOIP phone from a client's home to their work, at home they have a PC running XP hooked up to a generic DSL router doing NAT, and their work system has NetBSD 4.0 (i386) as their network gateway (also NAT'ing) and the PBX is inside their network. The easiest way to do this that I can see is to use OpenVPN as an ethernet bridge, SIP's a terrible protocol to pass through firewalls etc, and I figure the simplest way (if not necessarily the most efficient) will be to bridge the network.

Not quite what you are asking, but I've had no problems at all with using OpenVPN in routing (i.e. tun) mode to do exactly this. I've even gone as far as making client to client calls.
