Hi list,

I'm trying to connect to a openvpn server. This server is set up to use
the companies DHCP server (dnsmasq) to provide IPs to the VPN clients.

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?
