I'll write one and post it today. Coincidentally, I'm doing a re-
install of OpenVPN on a new server. FWIW, OpenVPN is not all that
difficult. Most of the instructions out there just make it all seem
so. Where it *can* get complicated, though, is when you're pushing a
bunch of different routes across the VPN connection.
You'll be able to view my OpenVPN instructions at: https://www.secure-
computing.net/wiki/index.php?title=OpenVPN_Server (ignore wrapping,
should all be one line). Note, as of my sending this, the document
doesn't exist. It should, at least in part, within the next hour or so.
