OpenVPN for Windows tutorial #

It's A Tech World (love the clean, simple design) has an excellent guide to setting up OpenVPN under Windows 2000/XP. I would only add that when editing vars.bat, be sure to use a text editor (like metapad) that has support for Unix line endings (unlike Notepad).

There is also a new OpenVPN book by Markus Feilner entitled OpenVPN: Building and Integrating Virtual Private Networks. The blurb reads in part: "This book is an easy introduction to this popular VPN application. After introducing the basics of security and VPN, the book moves on to cover using OpenVPN, from installing it on various platforms, through configuring basic tunnels, to more advanced features, such as using the application with firewalls, routers, proxy servers, and OpenVPN scripting. While providing only necessary theoretical background, the book takes a practical approach, presenting plenty of examples." Publisher | Amazon
