I finally setup an OpenVPN server. I use ssh and all it's glory but have known that a VPN would be good to have and a good experience also.

I used this Guide.

Note that bridging must be set up FIRST.

**Remember to which brctl and change the up and down scripts to reflect your location.

Remember to use tap and TCP.

In the client.conf I used the full paths to the certs:

ca /etc/openvpn/ca.crt
cert /etc/openvpn/easy-rsa/keys/1104.crt
key /etc/openvpn/easy-rsa/keys/1104.key

Also install network-manager-openvpn to connect via network-manager

Import your client.conf file.

It should work.

If you have any problems increase verbosity on both sides and start to track the issues.
