Directing OpenVPN client's traffic through the OpenVPN server
 
Hi,

I was able to create a server on my Arch Linux box using the default config file and was able to ping the server using a Linux and Win7 clients. However, I'm not quite sure how I can surf the net using the browsers on my client machines, so that they get server's IP address. Any idea how I can do that both in Win7 and Linux?

Thanks in advance

You'll need to set up some sort of web proxy server on the OpenVPN server (squid is pretty good), and make it listen on the same interface as the OpenVPN server. Whichever proxy server software you end up using, make sure you configure it correctly so that only authorised clients are allowed to use the proxy, to prevent abuse. In particular, make sure it's not running on a public network interface without some sort of authentication mechanism in place, or you're asking for trouble :)
