connecting a Raspberry Pi to my OpenVPN server

Post by greavette » Sat Nov 19, 2016 3:56 pm

Hello,

I'm sure this is an easy setup but I'm not finding who to do this. I have a Raspberry Pi at a location outside of my network. My network has a static IP and I have OpenVPN running. How do I setup my Raspberry Pi 3 (Jessie) to automatically connect and stay connected to my home network using OpenVPN? My Raspberry Pi Jessie is a server based install (no GUI). What do I need to install on my Pi 3 and is there a way to keep my connection to my OpenVPN alive?

Thank you in advance for any help you can provide.
