I am debating tackling OpenVPN. Or taking a nap first. I may regret trying to tackle this without having a clear head.
One of my project ideas is to route all the house mobile devices though the VPS that runs our email and web services. The idea being that when a user has the laptop for example at a Starbucks and is using the open wifi connection, all data is encrypted and can't be compromised.
The idea is that the VPN should be unintrusive to the user. Set it and forget it. This means in some cases where it is a hardware to hardware tunnel that there is no prompt for username and password.
I am trying to find the proper OpenVPN settings for this and it is a challenge.
OpenVPN HowTo goes into much detail about OpenVPN , but outside of the static key bit lacks any concise discussion about the server modes.
OpenVPN without username/password is specific to pfSense. I am trying to find more details related to changing the server mode.
OpenVPN 2.0.x, example 3 is the first one I'll be trying, if I can convert it from CLI notation to a server.conf file.
That's where I'll stop for now.
