If you will be creating several client configurations, create a script or some kind of automation for the steps of calling into the template where you can plug in parameters such as the key names and the actual subnet of the address that will be used. Then, in part of the script, do all the packaging of it because it will prevent errors and typos and save lots of time too. Also, expand on the number of connections right away, and have some reset scripts for each phase, if it goes down, to be able to restart it. It can be difficult to connect to a remote machine if you've lost your connection. I would rate it a 10 because I don't know of any other features that we're missing and it's so simple and flexible, customizable, that it's a really great product. View full review »

OpenVPN is a good option for kick-starting any kind of interoperability between offices. It doesn't have a huge setup time, so it's a quick way to start experimenting with how the organization would work with its VPN requirements. Even if your requirements are very small, it's a very convenient to start off with this solution. I rate it at eight out of 10 because it gives value for what it provides. You need technical know-how to get started on it, but it is also very swift. It has all the right features but it's technically challenging if you're not tech savvy. Providing clients with keys is not that straightforward. View full review »

Do your homework, and make sure that your test site where you're going to be setting this up has a good, solid connection with your ISP. That was the issue we ran into. We actually had to get our ISP out here to fix the modem that we were having issues with. View full review »

We did not use this product on AWS. We hosted the server on our network. My advice would be, if OpenVPN fits your environment and needs, it’s a great solution. Do it. View full review »

I use it as server and client in AWS. The first reason is to provide a kind of crypted VLAN. No real advice to give, except to be careful with the traffic in/out on extensive usage. I rate it 10 out of 10. Simple to install and maintain, easy to find documentation or help in Google. Try it. It's really fast to PoC and validate this solution. View full review »

I'd rate it at nine out of 10, just because the product has to grow. Carefully consider what do you want to get out of it, same as with the other software. View full review »

We don't this use solution on AWS. Used it with a different cloud service company. We had to use the standard VPN ports in order for it to work through our cloud service’s firewall. My advice would be, understand networking and your requirements first. View full review »
