Server Security In a previous tip, we looked at setting up an OpenVPN server. Now, I'll take you through the setup of a Linux OpenVPN client. The Linux client will be based on CentOS 5 using OpenVPN 2.0.9. For each client, you will need to have copied the client's certificate and key, as well as the CA certificate, from the server. This should be done in a secure manner so you can ensure the files are not altered in any way, such as using SSH to transfer or a USB stick in your possession. Once they are on the client, copy them to the /etc/openvpn/ directory:

# cd /etc/openvpn
# cp ~/client.{key,crt} .
# cp ~/ca.crt .
# cp /usr/share/doc/openvpn-2.0.9/sample-config-files/client.conf .
# vim client.conf
