"You will need:

"A Linux Server or Linux VPS – although this tutorial is specifically aimed at Debian based distributions, the OpenVPN configurations will be the same across the board – you will just have to tweak a few of the commands and directories. I tested this on OpenVZ but it should work on other virtualisation platforms.

"A couple of kernel modules enabled – You will need to be able to use the NAT table functionality of IP Tables. You will also need to have the Tap/Tun device enabled. If you are using a VPS you will need to contact your hosting provider to enable these if they are not available – I point out during the tutorial where you will find out if these are not enabled.

"A client – You will need at least one client to connect to your VPN – this can be with either a Windows or Linux client, but I will be showing a tutorial for Windows only – Linux client configuration will be the same however so you should have no trouble."
