Setting up an OpenVPN server

1. yum install openvpn.$HOSTTYPE 1. Copy /usr/share/openvpn/easy-rsa/ somewhere (like root's home directory with cp -ai /usr/share/openvpn/easy-rsa ~). 1. cd ~/easy-rsa 1. Edit vars appropriately. 1. . vars 1. ./clean-all 1. Before continuing, make sure the system time is correct. Preferably, set up NTP . 1. ./build-ca 1. ./build-inter $( hostname | cut -d. -f1 ) 1. ./build-dh 1. mkdir /etc/openvpn/keys 1. cp -ai keys/$( hostname | cut -d. -f1 ).{crt,key} keys/ca.crt keys/dh1024.pem /etc/openvpn/keys/ 1. cp -ai /usr/share/doc/openvpn-*/sample-config-files/roadwarrior-server.conf /etc/openvpn/server.conf 1. Edit /etc/openvpn/server.conf appropriately. 1. chkconfig --level 2345 openvpn on 1. service openvpn start 1. Verify that firewall rules allow traffic in from tun+, out from the LAN to tun+, and in from the outside on UDP port 1194. The following should work: iptables -A INPUT -i eth1 -p udp --dport 1194 -j ACCEPT iptables -A INPUT -i tun+ -j ACCEPT iptables -A FORWARD -i tun+ -j ACCEPT iptables -A FORWARD -i eth0 -o tun+ -j ACCEPT iptables -A FORWARD -i eth1 -o tun+ -m state --state ESTABLISHED,RELATED -j ACCEPT Or for genfw (my firewall-generation script, not currently available in Fedora), this in /etc/sysconfig/genfw/rules: append INPUT -i eth1 -p udp --dport 1194 -j ACCEPT append INPUT -i tun+ -j ACCEPT append FORWARD -i tun+ -j ACCEPT append FORWARD -i eth0 -o tun+ -j ACCEPT append FORWARD -i eth1 -o tun+ -j established </pre>

Setting up a Windows OpenVPN client

On the server: 1. <code>cd easy-rsa 1. . vars 1. ./build-key username On the client: 1. Install the OpenVPN GUI or the stand-alone OpenVPN client. 1. Copy username.crt, username.key, and ca.crt to C:\Program Files\OpenVPN\config\ on the client. 1. Drop roadwarrior-client.conf into C:\Program Files\OpenVPN\config\ as whatever.ovpn and edit appropriately. 1. Either use the GUI to start the connection, start the OpenVPN service manually, or set the OpenVPN service to start automatically.

Ideally the client should do some verification on the server key with tls-remote in the whatever.ovpn configuration file.
