Just to point out more the OpenVPN's configuration flexibility: I use
tls-remote on the client side and ccd-exclusive on the server side for
the peer CN verification. The advantage of this is, that I do not need
to run any script inside the server chroot jail, therefore no binaries
are inside, just small text files -- crl.pem and ccd/*.


I welcome the upcoming stable release. This project is indeed becoming
widely popular and I'm sure 2.0 will bring additional masses. :-) My
compliments to James Yonan, Mathias Sundman and others for their work
and immense support.
