    Hello,

    I hopes the below given information will be helpful to you.

    ++++++++++++++++++++++++


    Make a copy of the easy-rsa directory, to /etc/openvpn/

    cp -r /usr/src/openvpn-2.0.9/easy-rsa /etc/openvpn/

    cd /etc/openvpn/easy-rsa

    chmod 777 *

    mkdir /etc/openvpn/keys

    >> Edit the file /etc/openvpn/easy-rsa/vars using vi editor

    Change the line
    export KEY_DIR=$D/keys

    to

    export KEY_DIR=/etc/openvpn/keys

    Also at the bottom of this file you will see something similar to this,

    export KEY_COUNTRY=US
    export KEY_PROVINCE=CA
    export KEY_CITY=SOMEWHERE
    export KEY_ORG="My Org"
    export [email protected]

    Change this to your own values.

    Save and quit

    ++++++++++++++++++++++++

    I hopes you knows to make certificates. If not do post here and I will guide you on that.

    What network/netmask combination you used in the Server directive? The default values works well unless you are looking to configure a different subnet for VPN.
