What hardware for OpenVPN server?
Does someone know which hardware an OpenVPN server with ~20 users requires?
depends how loaded your machine already is and how many clients are using it.
I did a bit of research on it and it does not appear to be a resource hogg
When doing contracting work we usually just turn their old servers into OpenVPN boxes because it doesn't require much... I've seen 700mhz PIII's supporting more than that.

@magnuson56 I am planing to buy a new VPS and host only an OpenVPN server on it. There will be circa 20 clients using it
Number of users doesn't really matter - it's total amount of bandwidth that you'll be pushing through.
I've done ~15mbit on one of the cheapest VPS's from wdservers.com - access to one CPU core, 128mb of memory, and 10gb hard disk.
Really, on any modern VPS host, you shouldn't have any issues.
That is correct. And most of the VPS hosts now day's have a more modern setup.
