"You may install the OpenVPN software practically on any OS
under the sun. In reality, you'll be better off with a Linux or
*BSD box. For me, the Linux path was the obvious one. Although at
first I thought I'd go with Ubuntu Server, the Amahi Home Server
quickly won me over for its dead-easy installation and
"A Linux distribution is all one really needs for the software
part of a similar setup. For the hardware part, a pretty modest box
with a Pentium 3 class processor, 512 megs of RAM and a 20 gig hard
drive will do just fine. Alternatively, you can always prepare a
virtual machine for Amahi and use that instead of a physical
computer. Actually that's *exactly* what I did."
