OpenVPN Client & Server Configuration HOWTO

Giusto per non scordarmele di nuovo e visto che le usero’ molto spesso d’ora in avanti, ecco alcuni step per configurare un client e un server Linux ma anche Mac OS X per parlarsi in VPN con OpenVPN.

Installazione certificati

. ./vars

Copiare i file ca.* su entrambi i computer (client/server)

Creazione certificati client/server

. ./vars
./build-key-server <common-name-server>
./build-key <common-name-client>

Copiare i file <common-name-client>.* sul computer client

Configurazione Server

proto udp
dev tun
ca ca.crt
cert server.crt
dh dh1024.pem
#Subnet for the VPN, this computer will get the first ip (
ifconfig-pool-persist ipp.txt
keepalive 10 120
status openvpn-status.log
verb 3

    This will work for a routed VPN but if you want to broadcast (especially between clients) you will need to use a TAP interface, not TUN, and add the bridged option.
