No package "openvpn" in CentOS repo


This is on one server :
Code:
bash-3.2# yum search vpn --disablerepo "*" --enablerepo "base"
Loaded plugins: fastestmirror
Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile
 * base: archive.cs.uu.nl
======================================================================= Matched: vpn =======================================================================
openswan.x86_64 : Openswan IPSEC implementation
openvpn.x86_64 : Robust and highly flexible VPN daemon
This is on another server (but same installation) :
Code:
-bash-3.2# yum search vpn
Loaded plugins: fastestmirror
Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile
 * addons: ftp.nluug.nl
 * base: ftp.nluug.nl
 * extras: ftp.nluug.nl
 * updates: ftp.nluug.nl

Why can't server 2 find the package "openvpn" through yum ?

Quite simple : openvpn is in the EPEL repo.
https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/EPEL
https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/EPEL/FAQ#howtouse


And I have no idea, why it looks like it's
in the base repo on the one server.
Unless the EPEL url has been added to that file ?
