[HELP] Create Premium VPN using OpenVPN

Post by einjhel25m » Tue Apr 12, 2011 2:36 am


Im new here

i found a website offering a premium VPN and they are using OpenVPN with user authentication

i just want to create this kind of application, my own VPN using OpenVPN

i just need help and instructions on how,

do i need to have a physical server or is it ok to use a hosting server like godaddy for my database of my users..

and how can i configure user authentication to direct to my server..

is there any source there that i can use?

I hope someone could help me..

Thanks and God Bless

please read the openvpn docs first before asking these questions.

Yes this is possible using a hosted server (e.g. VPS)
Yes it is possible to use username+password authentication for this - read one of the HOWTO's, look for the pam plugin

There are many sample configurations out there that more of less do what you want, but it will be up to YOU to adapt it to your particular needs.
