Setup a OpenVPN server on FreeBSD 10.1

Hey,

I just wanted to recommend this guide if you are interested in setting up a VPN server at home or in the cloud.

I recommend you using at least 4096 key size and AES 256. If you go any higher it will take a lot of time to generate the keys, and you will get bad performance and timeouts (even with only one client) on the standard $5 per month server at DigitalOcean. More CPU cores will enable you to run stronger crypto!

Good luck!
