You can simplify OpenVPN installation by using the OpenVPN installation script by NYR

On your target installation server, run the following to download and execute the script into your home directory.

wget -O ~/
bash ~/

Default options you can choose are:

  • UDP Protocol
  • Port 1194
  • DNS Server

After the installer runs, you can now connect to the VPN, and you can rerun the script to add/remove clients or uninstall OpenVPN.
