Installing OpenVPN Community Edition via Turnkey Images

Gerhard Kleewein Updated by Gerhard Kleewein

Open Source VPN solution

OpenVPN® Community Edition provides a full-featured open source SSL/TLS Virtual Private Network (VPN). The TurnKey Linux VPN software appliance leverages the open source 'openvpn-server', 'openvpn-client' and 'easy-rsa' software (developed by OpenVPN® Inc.) to support "site-to-site" or "gateway" access. "Site-to-site" can link 2 otherwise unconnected LANs; suitable for multi-site enterprise networks or linkage to an Amazon VPC. "Gateway" configuration can secure traffic across public and/or insecure wifi connections and/or provide a secure solution for remote work scenarios.

  1. In your KVM dashboard click AutoInstall OS
  1. Click on the "Turnkey Images" tab
  2. Select OpenVPN from the dropdown

  1. Start a VNC session and finish the installation / configuration of the appliance accordingly.
