To get rid of cached password warning, edit /var/etc/openvpn/openvpn2/*.ovpn file and add:-

auth-nocache

Also to forward broadcast packets, make sure:-

server-bridge 192.168.1.1 255.255.0.0 xxxxxxxxx yyyyyyyyyy

where xxxxxxxxx is the start of the ip pool and yyyyyyyyy is the end of the ip pool to be bridged, eg. 192.168.7.20 192.168.7.29
