I'm trying to setup a VPN using OpenVPN and I'm completely confused here. I followed some more less clear tutorials that include something like
sudo apt-get install openvpn
I configured here and there but never got the server running. Then I looked in https://openvpn.net/index.php/access-server/docs/quick-start-guide.html which claims:
OpenVPN Access Server consists of three major components:
- OpenVPN Server
- Admin Web Interface/Admin UI
- Connect Client
Regarding that the Web interface will allow to configure the openvpn package I installed it and the confusion really started. None of my changes in the web admin reflected in the /etc/open/ files. I fully uninstalled the package and the web admin still allows to configure and start and stop the server.
Before going any forward in my VPN setup I want to know what is the difference between OpenVPN Access Server and just OpenVPN (the openvpn package)?
Does the OpenVPN Access Server includes the server and is not just a web/admin interface?
