I have followed the guide here https://help.ubuntu.com/10.04/serverguide/openvpn.html but when i try to start OpenVPN i get following error:

ovpn-server[2455]: Options error: --server and --server-bridge cannot be used together

How do i solve this problem?

EDIT: Problem was was solved by uncommenting server-bridge parameter in /etc/openvpn/server.conf, since server parameter was used for this purpose.

Where does that guide use the server and server-guide options together? Note that the example has a ; comment character infront of the server option. –  andol Feb 12 '13 at 13:58
@andol, i resolved the error. I did not comment out server when adding server-bridge. –  JavaCake Feb 12 '13 at 14:07
Could you post an answer detailing what you did? –  Manishearth Feb 12 '13 at 16:35
