thanks for the tip, this seems to be what I was looking for. Notice the syntax has evolved a bit (LXD 0.18) to 'lxc profile edit bridge' (no more config keyword).

comment Can I use only Ubuntu as my custom Pc OS?
Can you tell us what hardware you are using ? I can tell you by experience that most hardware work just fine with Linux. The main point to be aware of is graphic card : which one are you using ?

comment Ubuntu OpenVPN is connected but won't change IP
Just look at the right side of the page, saying "Alternatively to using CyberGhost VPN with its own client, a Premium user can connect directly via the OpenVPN, L2TP/IPSec or PPTP protocol with the CyberGhost VPN network." So you can use Linux and OpenVPN for example.

comment Why does dnsmasq use /bin/dash?
This is possible, but I can't see why a C pragram would try to execute /bin/dash just to write in a file !? It could simply open the file and write into it, couldn't it ?

@Fabby I am indeed blocking most outgoing traffic, be it IPV4 or IPV6 and only open streams I know I need. I'm currently reading through this: ietf.org/rfc/rfc4890.txt I'll come back when done !
