OpenVPN and non static ip
 
Trying to set up the .conf file for openvpn at home as a server, and was wondering if it matters that I have a non-static ip?

openvpn works great with hosts that have a dynamic ip.
you only need to make sure that you create a hostname for your 'server'.

have a look at http://www.dyndns.org/

and make sure you use (on the client side) the resolv-retry parameter..

example:
resolv-retry 2592000 # 1 month

Cheers!
