I need to set up a network bridge for OpenVPN but I am connecting over ssh so I need to do this without losing web connectivity on the server. I am using Ubuntu 12.04 LTS. I know the basics but I am asking for a step-by-step guide so that I don't screw something up and lose my ssh connection.
I've done it while my network manager was still installed and I didn't lose ssh but I couldn't load pages on the server anymore. So either the network manager was helping me (or hindering) or I've done something wrong. Right now I managed to remove the network manager and edited
/etc/network/interfaces so I have internet, but I don't want to do more until I have some answers.
