Hello, @martine89f6d03887142d9a010

I assume you’re referring to this tutorial in question:

The tutorial will help you to setup your OpenVPN server. In doing so you will have to option to connect to the server once you’re connected from untrusted network and so on. Any device you have (laptop, tablet or phone) will communicate with the OpenVPN server directly in order to secure the connection.

Could you please expand more on your question as I would like to know what exactly you’re trying to achieve here?

Have you experienced any issues while following the tutorial or you just would like to know more about the functionality it has?

Let me know if you have any questions.

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.

Yes this is the guide I’m referring to but how would I be able to setup a site to site vpn (or server to server) with a secure network on both sides? Do I have to change anything in the settings to get this to work?
