Hello, I was wondering if you could add an article and/or tutorial on how to setup a VPN tunnel with openvnp or with IPSec/L2TP. I have been playing around with openvpn and still can’t make it work properly. I have also spent alot of time trying to make a VPN tunnel using IPSec and L2TP and that is also not work.

I think having a tutorial would be great. I have followed many different guides found online but none of them seem to work properly.

Without any previous experience with setting up VPN, I used the script below. It was ready in less than 5 minutes. :) <br> <br> <br> <br>1. Launch a new 512MB droplet. I used Debian x86. <br>2. I am using port 443 instead of the default port 1194, port 53 as backup. <br>3. Downloaded the certificates created. <br>4. I am using Tunnelblick OSX client for OpenVPN. <br> <br>5. It works great! <br>
