OpenVPN Initial Setup

Elliott Scott
CEO at Scott Solutions LLC
Going through the setup for the first time will be a challenge. What I have done is write down a procedure to follow, that I have used every time since. I make modifications from time to time, as new features have been introduced, or old features have been replaced. Having a working set of config files available to use as a basis to build out new tunnels have been a blessing, too! View full review »

It was a little bit complex but now that I've done it a couple times it's pretty straightforward. Looking at everything to begin with was a little bit complex, building the certificates, etc. Since then, we've scripted everything and that makes it much easier. View full review »

If we had to create something for someone who was not necessarily tech savvy, I had to set that up on their computer, I had to write "read me's" and other things so that they could install their client and then connect to the VPN by themselves. So it was hard to set up for people who are not tech savvy. I had to actively provide assistance and walk them through the whole process. View full review »

It was pretty straightforward. We've seen terrible things with Citrix, so nothing compared to that. View full review »

It was already set up when I got there. However, I have set up OpenVPN elsewhere. The initial setup is very straightforward as long as you understand something about the way the OS works, and how the networking and certificates work. View full review »

50/50 (straightforward/complex). It requires some experience of Linux server configuration. If you are an experienced Linux user, setup is pretty fast and simple. View full review »

It was fine, as long as you followed instructions, but it can seem complex if you do not know what you are doing. View full review »

Relatively straightforward. We just needed to insert the configuration file on each workstation. View full review »
