Hi @deividc047,

You can configure an OpenVPN VPN pretty easily. There is a pretty good article about it from DigitalOcean:

The article itself covers most of the requirements you’ve given, those that are not covered in the article, you should be able to get from your Droplet as information from various services.

Having said that, can you let us know where exactly do you need to fill this up?

OpenVPN is a full-featured, open-source Secure Socket Layer (SSL) VPN solution that accommodates a wide range of configurations. In this tutorial, you will set up an OpenVPN server on an Ubuntu 18.04 server and then configure access to it from Windows, OS X, iOS and/or Android devices. This tutorial will keep the installation and configuration steps as simple as possible for each of these setups.
