GIT- In this (video)-tutorial I’ll show you how to setup your own access in just a few minutes! OpenVPN is an open source software application that implements VPN techniques for creating secure point-to-point connections.

In order to proceed, you’ll need the following:

  • A basic installation of 5.8 (32- or 64-bit)
  • A dedicated or virtual machine

After the installation of CentOS, head over to the OpenVPN website at and go to “VPN Solution”. Now click on “Access Server Software Packages”. Select the appropriate operating system. In my case it’s CentOS. Copy the URL of your OS version and make a choice between 32- or 64-bit. In my case it’s CentOS 5, 64-bit.

Head over to your terminal and execute the following command:

# wget

The process will now start. Please be patient until it’s finished. Next, we’ll use rpm to the software on our machine.

# rpm -i openvpn-as-1.8.4-CentOS5.x86_64.rpm

The installation process will now start. This will take a few seconds. Next, we want to set a for the default VPN user “openvpn”.

# passwd openvpn

Next, open a browser and go to the URL mentioned after “Admin UI:” just after installing and try to log in with the username and password that you’ve just set.

The next thing you’ll have to do is test it from a remote location. You can use either the OpenVPN Connect or OpenVPN Client software to connect on a machine. Both packages can be found here.
