Hi Erich,

Thanks for your help.

I am actually looking at having the VPN Tunnel between the Window PC A to D
and Linux Server A, and I do not wish to have the openVPN tunnel from Linux
Server A to Linux Server B.

Can it be done?

Best Regards,
Andrew

OpenVPN only, no. As server B has a public address it can be addressed
directly by anyone. You would have to limit your clients somehow. The
better approach would be to set server B somewhere behind a firewall,
where it can be addressed only by secured channels.

cheers

Erich
