First linux cui build... OpenVPN box install issue...

I have been compiling instructions for my build so I can re-create it if I need to. So far here is what I have...

Built a basic install of centos 6.5 64 bit. Basic server option.

Edit “/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/” so that on boot = yes
#service network start
#ifconfig -a
if ip address is valid then “#yum update”

#yum install gcc make rpm-build autoconf.noarch zlib-devel pam-devel openssl-devel -y

# wget
# rpmbuild --rebuild lzo-1.08-4.rf.src.rpm
# rpm -Uvh lzo-*.rpm

find out what version of linux and what release (this is running cent 6.5 64bit)

# wget

# rpm -Uvh rpmforge-release*

# yum install -y openvpn

I already ran the above command, but I need the easy-rsa. Should I run the command below to get that or because I already have openvpn installed run a different command?

# yum install openvpn easy-rsa

_____________not done yet. config files need to be setup still (also backed up VM)

# service openvpn status
openvpn: service not started
# service openvpn start
Starting openvpn:
# service openvpn stop
Shutting down openvpn:

If you've already installed openvpn, but you need to install easy-rsa, then you can run:

# yum install easy-rsa
