Any expirience with OpenVPN any one ?
« on: March 14, 2009, 08:35:04 am »
I'm trying to find a way to get scure web access without a static ip. While browsing the net I found http://openvpn.net/.
Any one ever try this out to see if it will work with lmce ?

Thnx
Itsik

Hi

I have some experience with openvpn from other systems (than lmce). Usually its just a package you need to install and set up to get it to work. So I don't see any reason that it wouldn't work with LMCE. Haven't checked that there is a ubuntu package for it though...

br,

Use dyndns and an ssh tunnel with port forwarding. I do that all the time to a lmce system a couple of miles away.
