Cool OpenVPN server


Hi There,

I've been extremely pleased with linuxquestions.org folks

Here is my situation

I have installed OpenVPN on Red-hat server(inside the aws VPC) and i got a questions in server.conf


I don't have a static ip

as per the Ubuntu doc the say


Edit /etc/openvpn/server.conf changing the following options to:

local 172.18.100.101
dev tap0
up "/etc/openvpn/up.sh br0"
down "/etc/openvpn/down.sh br0"
;server 10.8.0.0 255.255.255.0
server-bridge 172.18.100.101 255.255.255.0 172.18.100.105 172.18.100.200
push "route 172.18.100.1 255.255.255.0"
push "dhcp-option DNS 172.18.100.20"
push "dhcp-option DOMAIN example.com"
tls-auth ta.key 0 # This file is secret
user nobody
group nogroup

My local ip can 0.0.0.0/0 since i'm giving access to no of people around the world OR should use my Elastic ip ?

please understand i'm using openvpn server inside the aws VPC

Does this make sense

My elastic ip is 46.51.217.201 subnet mask is 10.0.0.0/24

Thanks
Puspharaj
