Has anyone installed OpenVPN on a NemsLinux Build?

just curious if it installs ok without breaking anything.  I have a spare XU4 which should handle NEMS and OpenVPN without much performance hit.

just wondering if anyone had done this previously.
I have now managed to do this using a Script via SSH.

https://github.com/Nyr/openvpn-install

run the command:


Code:
wget https://git.io/vpn -O openvpn-install.sh && bash openvpn-install.sh


and then follow the prompts. the script will create a *.OVPN file in the /root folder.

import this OVPN file on your PC that has the installed OpenVPN Client.

Whatever port you have selected you will need to port forward this port to your NEMSLinux IP address from your WAN interface/Router and then just connect to your NEMSLinux using the client. it is as simple as that.
Very cool, Simon! Thanks for posting how you got it working. SO easy!

Mind posting in User Contributions, and also post a few use cases as to why a user would want to do this? It may find its way into an upcoming build.

Thanks!
