VPS and OpenVPN


#1

Hi I just want to know if it’s possible to install OpenVPN on my VPS.

If yes which version because on the OpenVpn website they are saying that for Debian I should take the Ubuntu deb file : http://openvpn.net/index.php/access-server/download-openvpn-as-sw/113.html?osfamily=Ubuntu.

But there are many version (ubuntu 9 and 10) etc.

Thanks by advance.

No, it’s not possible. OpenVPN requires a level of network access that isn’t available on our VPSes.

Thank you andrewf.

Is there any other kind of VPN that I can install?

Depends on what you’re after. If you just need secure access to your server and files, you can tunnel that over SSH. If you’re looking for secure Internet access in general, though, you will need to purchase that elsewhere, as that isn’t a service which we provide.

secure Internet access => Is that the option of “VPN Access” of 19,95? If it’s that it’s huge… (so huge that i was thinking it was something else…). :frowning:

It is not, actually. That’s only good for access to our servers, as an alternative to SSH tunneling.

Thank you
