Installing and configuring OpenVPN (part1)

This articles describes how to install OpenVPN on a Linux-based virtual private server from JoinVPS and configure client connection from the  Windows Vista machine.

OpenVPN is a virtual private network technology (VPN) for creating encoded tunnels between server and client computers.

One of the advantages of this technology is that it allows to connect from computers that are behind NAT and use key authentication. Owning to TCP and UDP protocols you can use OpenVPN even when internet providers block other means of data transfer.

You can highly estimate its cross platform, easy installation and configuration.
You can install OpenVPN on the Linux virtual private server only. We recommend using Debian 5.0 or Centos 5.4.

Before installation, enable the tun modules and NAT (if address translation is required). Submit a ticket to the Technical support team to have these modules enabled.
