[quote]The home page for OpenVPN describes it as a daemon which is
something you wouldn’t be able to run on a shared server due to
the prohibition on persistent processes.

[quote]VPN service is provided to customers on the Strictly Business
plan which includes two VPN users.
That’s good. My question concerns whether it’s possible to “roll my own” without buying Strictly Business service.
