making openvpn secure with openssl ( ? )
i would like to setup a secure vpn up between two Linux boxes, i have tried to follow the howto at openvpn.sourceforge.net but but i am having trouble following it ( i.e. things not working, and having to go off at a tangent to get it going etc )
i would like to set it up so i can basically connect as and when i need it, by running it in daemon mode i think this is the way to achieve this ( ? )
my only query outstanding is how do i make it as secure as possible?
most sites seem to recommend using openssl and generating a CA and signing csr's and what have you, is/are there out there any examples of how to get this running step by step and covering every thing that is needed to achieve that step?
or have any of you any advise on how to get it secure?
and as a side question ( not important but i would like to know ) how can i set up a vpn connection where i can just connect windows 2000 to it and it will connect?
i welcome any suggestions
