Any guidance on configuring OpenVPN?
« on: 30 August 2011, 10:26:58 pm »

I want to use my DreamPlug as a VPN server so I can connect my iPhone to the Net over an open WiFi network in a hotel without worrying about eavesdroppers.  It will also give me a UK IP address which is handy for accessing some websites when I'm abroad.

I've got most things in place - my DreamPlug is connected to my cable router and I've got a dyndns account looking after my public IP address.  I need to set up a port forwarder in my router (which ports?), but other than that I'm good to go, I think!

I've changed my apt sources.list file to use old-releases.ubuntu.com and I've run apt-get install openvpn, so what do I do next?

Thanks in advance!
