"Untangle supports OpenVPN's site-to-site and client-to-site configurations. Site-to-site means you can create a secure tunnel between your different offices or locations via the Internet, so you can share files and resources between them all. Client-to-site means you can offer connections to remote users, so they can securely access their files or so they can encrypt their Internet traffic from Wi-Fi eavesdroppers when they're using hotspots. We'll set up both solutions.

"First, you must setup the OpenVPN server. If doing site-to-site connections, you just need to do this at one location, such as your main office. Then we'll configure another Untangle machine as a VPN client or site at the other locations. If you're offering only remote access to individuals, you can configure an Untangle machine as the server at any location. Then we'll install and configure the OpenVPN client program onto the desired computers."
