NetworkManager currently relies on using OpenVPNs internal "DHCP
server". Is that true?
On holiday seems likely ;)
You are right, the NM code expects an IP address back directly from the
openvpn server. I couldn't comment on how difficult it would be to
provide an option to use DHCP instead...
I guess it's not an option for you to exclude a pool of addresses from
the dnsmasq server and allocate them to openvpn?
