    A typical howto. And, just to be sure, it makes overblown statements that can't possible be correct, doesn't discuss options, doesn't discuss downsides, and leaves out tons of details.

        Miss the point much?

        That's what the man pages are for. howtos == bad.

        My comment wasn't really about this one in particular but about this whole class of "documentation".

      it gets you started. i think it's actually pretty atypical for a howto.

    ...if you do this, be aware that the OpenVPN has had security fixes since 3.8-release; you can find 2.0.4 packages on the ftp servers.
