    Default openvpn - is it installed?

    I think I just installed openvpn but I don't see it listed under applications. I read a blog on how to create a certificate but didn't know if there is a graphical interface for this software. How do I know I installed it correctly and where can I see the version installed? I have suse 11.1 runnning.

    rpm -q openvpn

    will show if it's installed. I don't know if the GUIs are up to scratch, haven't looked recently. I've been configuring it from the CLI so far.

    After I typed rpm -q openvpn and hit return, it displayed

    openvpn-2.0.9-143.15

    I guess this means that it is installed?

    Thx.

    Yup.
    But there is no GUI for the Linux installation, it's plain VI-cious config files
    edits all the way.
    The docs are in /usr/share/doc/packages/openvpn/ ,with examples in sample-config-files.

    I think the KNetworkManager has some vpn support, but the last time I used it, it had quite a lot of bugs, such as not closing the vpn connection, not showing whether or not you're connected, and other annoying stuff. The easiest solution is to write a little config which you execute to start/stop vpn.

    To me the first posting sounds like the TS wants to set up an openvpn-Server.

    If so, the openvpn-plugin for networkManager won't be of much help, as it is only a GUI for client-side functions (AFAIK).
