Default Centos & Ubuntu


You just need to install openvpn via the repos:

Centos - # yum install openvpn (you might need the rpmforge repo)

Ubuntu - # sudo aptitude install openvpn

There should be an /etc/openvpn directory where you need to configure your client conf which there will be a sample of in /usr/share/docs/openvpn or somewhere similar.

On centos it will be started via /etc/init.d/openvpn start (also Ubuntu).

To start on boot you can use 'chkconfig openvpn on' and ubuntu I thing rc-update or something like that.

Good luck!
