building openvpn for centos and windows?

Postby ricohard » Tue Apr 03, 2012 6:48 pm

Hi, can anyone help teach how to build openvpn from source for centos and windows. Centos for server and windows for client.

I want to run sum test and use some building options like --enable-small, --enable-password-save, --disable-eurephia, etc.. Problem is i have very few knowlage about building from source specially unix.

And is it possible to use --disable-lzo, --disable-crypto, --disable-ssl at the same time during building. I'm not going to use it in the actual server for clients since its not secured. Just to test some stuffs. Thanks!

read up at
https://community.openvpn.net/openvpn/wiki/WikiStart
section 'Getting OpenVPN' on how to build OpenVPN.

The Windows build process is quite similar to the Linux process, except for the tap-win32 driver; if you need to rebuild that driver then additional software and perhaps an official code signing cert are needed (which costs $$$)
