How to build Private Network and VPN

Posted August 21, 2019 3.2k views


I would like to create a private network of 4 servers that are not accessible from the public internet and a 5th server that acts as VPN server. The VPN server should provide connectivity to the 4 server of the Private Network.

Can anyone point me to the correct direction? Where do I start.

Thank you

I recommend you start by looking at OpenVPN Access Server. This is available in the Droplet Marketplace. Create one of these, and then you can connect your 4 servers to it using the OpenVPN Connect application (there are ports available for Windows, Mac OSX, Linux, iOS, and Android). Be aware that the free version only supports 2 clients. Additional devices cost $15/device/year with a minimum of 10 devices.
