OPENVPN HELP Please


Humble respects to all Linux gurus out der...

I want to set up an openvpn server that can accept connections from remote clients with dynamic IPs,
I have installed fedora 14 on server machine and fedora 12 for client
both of which have openvpn-2.1.1-2.fc12.i686(on client) installed openvpn-2.1.1-2.fc13.i686(on server) yum update says these are the latest ver,but openvpn.net says 2.2.1 is the latest which I cannot download coz tarball just does not gets transformed into rpm.
nyways using the versions which I alredy have on my system if I try to setup openvpn server or client I need to fisrt set up CA cert keys and server and client and certs and keys now according to all the documentation out der easy-rsa should be used but easy-rsa is missing in both the machines,now I have no clue what to do ???

Sagaflips, welcome to LQ.

First, please be aware that you posted to the security forum and your issues with respect to installing and configuring OpenVPN would be better addressed in the Software forum.

Second, referencing the following from your post:

I don't mean to sound harsh, but this comment leads me to suspect that you may be attempting a task that may be a bit advanced for you yet. Typically, application source code is distributed as a tarball and from this you can configure and install as a custom setup. By way of contrast, an RPM (Redhat Package Manager) is a pre-configured and compiled package for your system. The versions available via RPM typically lag behind those from the project developers. Unless there is a need for an updated feature, staying with the RPM is usually the better option.

When you say "according to all the documentation", are you following a particular how-to guide and is it one oriented towards your distribution?
