    Does anyone have any experience of setting up a VPN? I have compiled and installed OpenVPN on a desktop machine running Mac OS X 10.5.1 and am having a little difficulty getting the server configured properly.

    Basically I want to be able to access my home network from my University room so I can use my network for things like gaming :). Should work but configuring a VPN is not something I have done before.

    Basically I'm not sure where to put the configuration file for OpenVPN and where it installs the scripts for the configuring the public and private keys for the server.

    Any help is appreciated.

    You could use ExpressVPN. It is more reliable. Check out their website.

    You sure you can have a VPN there (not blocked)?

    Wow, earlier today I saw a 6 year old thread revived and thought that was going to be the oldest I saw for awhile, but that didn't last long!
