openvpn or ovpnAS with vpc

Post by FatDragon » Mon Nov 03, 2014 9:22 pm


I am consulting for a big startup project. I have already deployed vpnserver for some of our test environments.

We like the fact that we can customize the openvpn server and automate server provisioning via scripts for vpnserver.

However I still need these vpnserver to be able to communicate with AWS VPC (public and private subnets).

Is Access Server the only way to work with vpc and to be able to connect corporate office to the vpc networks or can I use the non access server openvpn server to also achieve this?

OpenVPN Access Server is a commercial product, support for which is provided via their official channels.

OpenVPN Community Edition is Free Open Source Software, support for which is provided by volunteers.

If you want to answer your questions study the documentation and clearly identify your own specific requirements.

Then make a judgement call, based on your requirements and how closely OpenVPN products match those requirements.

This post will remain here for others to offer thier opinions based on what ever clear requirements you are able to divuldge.
