my university is providing OpenVPN to provide public internet IP address for students (for some libraries etc.) - in other words, they are sharing their internet connection via openVPN...

I would like to do same thing in my home server, but I have no idea, how to configure it...

I've finished first 13 points following the manual ( http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Openvpn ). But have no clue, what should be in server.conf and how to set fedora 17 firewall (propably iptables).

Server has one interface em1: flags=4163<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,MULTICAST> mtu 1500 which has private network address ( NAT router is configured to send all incoming traffic to the server (DMZ).

Can somebody send me simple example of OpenVpn server and client config file, to share internet -> when somebody connect to my OpenVPN, he can access internet services in his computer with my IP address?

Many thanks

rpm -ql openvpn | grep ample-config-fil

There are already some examples on your installation. You should first think about different Use cases. Roadwarrior or Site to Site VPN.


The really lazy answer is OpenVPN Access Server. It does all the hard work for you and is really easy to set up.
