Configuring

The information below is from http://openvpn.net/index.php/documentation/howto.html#install

Generate the master Certificate Authority

cd easy-rsa/2.0

Once in that directory edit the vars file to suite your needs.

After you're done editing the file run the following to generate a new key:

source vars
./clean-all
./build-ca

Next we need to generate a certificate and a key for the server.

./build-key-server server

You can build a certificate and a key for clients with the following command:

./build-key client1

Generate Diffie Hellman parmaters file with the following command:

./build-dh
