Basic OpenVPN Server and Client Configuration
Over the last few weeks we’ve been discussing OpenVPN, the best free VPN solution out there. I’ve looked at and tried to explain each configuration parameter, both Server and Client. This week I’m posting a basic configuration which should have you up and running within 15 minutes. I encourage you to try it, and if you have any questions leave a comment and I’ll try to help as much as I can.
On the flip side there are a number of really good books on OpenVPN, from beginner to advanced. Packt Publishing comes to mind, they have really inexpensive PDF versions, of which I’ve read two. In fact they’ve recently released the 3rd and newest addition to their OpenVPN lineup. I’ll post a link shortly.
Good luck and let me know how you made out.
