I installed an openvpn server last night and made public and private keys and certs for the server and for a user account.
To set up a connection from my windows box, I did this:
1. I copied the server cert and the user account private key and cert to my windows box.
2. I installed the windows openvpn gui.
3. I wrote a client config file.
It all works perfectly. Which is wonderful. I just right-click on the doodad on my systray and the connection begins. Maybe later I'll learn how to prompt with a password.
Anyhow, I want other people in my office to use this system and I think the steps involved might be too much for nontechnical staff.
Is there some cute way I can do all this client-side set up very easily?
All general comments about how to use VPNs with non-technical people are welcome.
Also, I just want to say that openvpn is a fantastic product.
