Can anyone please guide me to setup a opnevpn between two droplets.

If i have droplet A and Droplet B, Droplet B is openvpn server.Is it possible to connect Droplet A through Droplet B openvpn server and limiting the direct access of Droplet A directly. All the connection request should be only made through Openvpn server. Restrict Direct access to Droplet A through its public IP, and both droplet should only communicates through private networking with each other. In this way i just want to make it possible to restrict access to Droplet A for the outer world without implementation of heavy iptables and firewall rules to prevent any Droplet A’s application misbehavior.

Thank you

Though the IPTables approach works as well, and I’d argue it is easier to accomplish. Check out this tutorial for an alternative approach:
