Subject: Re: OpenVPN Setup

OK I know I saw this somewhere but it eludes me now. I have generated the keys 
and certificates for the server and client on my FreeBSD server. I then copied 
them over to my Windows laptop but apparently cannot find where I'm supposed to 
copy them to. And my replies keep getting blocked by some kind of spam filter.

There isn't different software for server and client; OpenVPN performs either 
role depending on how it is configured.
Given that the Windows installer is very close to the size of a 1.4 MB floppy, 
you're likely consuming about twenty cents worth of disk space, or about a 
dollar's worth of SSD space.
