Openvpn basic missing network/firewall passages

#1

Hi, i've tried to configure from scratch an openvpn server but the basic guide is missing the first part.
I've tried to follow the two links of network and firewall but i couldn't extrapolate the required setting to proceed with the guide.
I would be really glad if someone could help me resolving this.

No, it's fine, see:

uci set firewall.@zone[0].device="tun0"

This way you assign VPN-interface to LAN-zone.
It's because of that issue:
OpenVPN client tun adapter loses its IP address on network restart

Thanks for your response.
Yes but that interface shouldn't be configured first?
I remembered from a previous guide that i've declared a tun0 interface under networks->interfaces before setting up but now i couldn't find it anymore on the openvpn page.

No, it is not managed by network service in any way.
