Hi, I want to install OpenVPN on my osmc running on a Raspberry Pi 3. I made some tutorials how to install openvpn server on Debian, Raspian and also Windows Server.
But on OSMC the problem is, that the /etc/network/interfaces is ignored. But because I need bridging I need to setup a br0 device and a tap0.
This does not work at the moment. How can I either:
use connmgr to create tap and br devices?
or disable connmgr and use the traditional way debian is configuring network adapters?
Thanks very much in advance for your reply.

There is a HowTo on instaling OpenVPN Server on OSMC.
I’ve recently set up OpenVPN Server on my Rapsberry Pi running OSMC. It wasn’t a straight forward process so I’ve documented my experience on my blog here …
Note this is OpenVPN Server NOT Client. Setting up your Pi as an OpenVPN server allows you to securely connect to your home network with your phone/tablet/laptop when you are out and about.
I found there were already some good tutorials for installing OpenVPN on Raspbain which I used as a guide. However I also found there were some diffe…
Hi, thanks for your manual. This seem to work if you use OpenVPN in tun mode what you did, but I need the openvpn server in bridge mode (tap). So i need to create a bridged device. How does this work with osmc?
My manual is here:
Sorry, its in germany, but the command etc. should be clear.

No idea, better ask the author of the manual.
I wrote that manual … and it works everywhere except on osmc because they use connmgr and the /etc/network/interfaces is ignored.
