Is there a way to link a VPN (tun0) adapter to a fake physical (let's say ethX) adapter?

What do you mean by "link" an adapter to another? – Riccardo Murri Aug 9 '10 at 8:55

Create a bridge interface. Lots of howto's for that exist (depending on if you want to do it with OpenVPN, /etc/network/interfaces, etc)
