Setting up OpenVPN server on Fedora 23

Posted May 20, 2016 10.6k views

Hi, I’m looking for a script similar to the digitalocean (Ubuntu) script:

To enable me to set up my Fedora 23 instance to be an OpenVPN server.

Has anyone done it themselves and has either a script or instructions to share ?

I set the distribution to Ubunto on this question as Fedora was not in the list (is anyone else actually using Fedora in digitalocean ?)

We don’t currently have an OpenVPN script available for Fedora but here are a few resources that will help you to get this set up.

1.) Fedora official documentation on setting up OpenVPN
2.) Our tutorial on setting up OpenVPN on CentOS 7 - CentOS is based on RHEL and pretty closely related to Fedora. You will likely need to change yum commands to dnf ones but otherwise this should work for you.

Well, CentOS is based upon easy-rsa version 2 and Fedora 23 is based upon easy-rsa version 3. And those are quite different.
