I'm a new OpenVPN user. I'm working under Ubuntu, as a client.

What I couldn't find is if OpenVPN client process gives anyone on a private network any access to my computer, or if it looks the same as for my real local network, i.e. iptables (which I'm using through Firestarter) are in charge of network traffic, and only local users can see/use services I consciously exposed by allowing inbound connections.
