I just installed OpenVPN the other day and I’m glad I finally got around to it. I’ve been putting it off for quite some time now, but having somebody else set it up prodded me into doing so as well. Turns out it’s insanely easy. It comes with a set of scripts and basically you run those scripts to create your certs, drop the default config in place with a couple of changes and voila, you’ve got yourself an SSL VPN. I used a few resources during setup and you can find them on my del.icio.us links.
I was not, however, able to get bridged mode to work but the ability to have access to my internal subversion repository from wherever I am is more than enough compensation. ;-)
Now to set up some configs to create that global file-sharing infrastructure between my friends and I that we’ve been planning on for the past few years. grin
