I followed the following tutorial http://readwrite.com/2014/04/10/raspberry-pi-vpn-tutorial-server-secure-web-browsing to create a Rpi vpn server. The main difference is the writer here has the eth01 interface set to dhcp and mine is set to static.
There is a part of the tutorial where you add a firewall rule file to /etc/network/interfaces. Since mine is static, it differs from the tutorial. When I try to add "pre-up /etc/firewall-openvpn-rules.sh" to this file, when I reboot my interface is not given an IP address.
I have tried adding it below "iface eth0 inet static" and also after "gateway 192.168.1.254" but either time the Rpi does not get an IP.
You can see the file contents here: http://pastebin.com/9313CDrm.
How do I go about getting this file added and get my Rpi to still receive it's static IP?
