Description

The OpenVPN local directive is forced to be specified (by the interface drop down), forcing the OpenVPN server to use a specific IP address. That's usually desirable, but:

1) Need to list CARP and IP Alias type VIPs
2) Need an "any" option there to allow listening on all IPs, which is our current behavior, and needed in some circumstances.

Advice from Ermal:

Please use get_interface_ip() for friendly interfaces
and find_interface_ip() for real interfaces.

Do not roll your own as in:
312

313    // Get ip address for the requested interface
314    $lines = explode(' ', trim(shell_exec("ifconfig {$iface} | grep inet | grep -v inet6")));
315    $iface_ip = $lines[1];

Ticket reopened.

/etc/inc/openvpn.inc now used get_interface_ip() when generating config file.
