[HOW TO++] OpenVPN Server Configuration - Great instructions

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

  I have been scouring forums for weeks trying to turn my RPi into an OpenVPN Server.  I kept getting problems with the commands in the various how-to I ran into.  Especially trying to route my traffic.  That is until I found a "Gold Paper" written by the "SANS Security Institute" which I take to mean the configuration will be pretty good to protect my privacy...

 

    It explains not only how to configure your RPi but why it needs to be configured a certain way.  This made the difference between having a buggy OpenVPN and having a server that, I hope, is fully secure and works with my laptop and my android phone. 

 

  Before, I had all sorts of problem routing my traffic via my home network.  Now.  I can access my hoem files when travelling AND I can route all my traffic, encrypted, via my home network.  Which mean I can keep accessing netflix even when I travel to Canada or europe :)
