You need to install OpenVPN, for which there are MANY easily-found how to guides. But you first need to stop where you are, and load something other than Fedora 20. That is very, VERY old, and if you need a secure VPN, you don't want to use old software/crypto libraries. The latest Fedora Server is 25, with 26 not too far off.

Also, you say "configure VPN", but don't say whether you mean you want to attach to an existing VPN server, or build a VPN server of your own. Either way...you need something newer than F20.
