server (they are connected to internet via NAT - not shown on the

Config. files are taken from
http://openvpn.sourceforge.net/20notes.html - "Sample OpenVPN 2.0
config file for multi-client server" and "Sample client-side OpenVPN
2.0 config file for connecting to multi-client server."

The questions:
1.What should I correct in these sample configs?
2.How should I generate keys & certificates? I did: with "easy-rca"
scripts made root certificate ca.crt & ca.key. Then with 'build-inter'
script made intermediate CA certificate/private key pair (signed with
root ca) for server and for 2 offices. There was a question about
'challenge password' - what is it?
3.How should I setup OpenVPN clients on Windows boxes?
4.Help me please!!! - everyone who knows anything about OpenVPN
