    will these instrucions work with the rp2? will it matter i i install as root user? will it autostart on boot? sometimes my pi2 gets unplugged without a proper shutdown. would that damage the setup if all im using it for is a vpn?

    • This will work perfectly well on a Raspberry Pi 2. I’ve just setup my VPN server again on a Pi2 and had no problem, fact the setup took a lot less time!

      I’ve also not had any problems with losing power. OpenVPN will start up at boot and be sitting ready for connections with-in about 10-15 seconds of you adding power – as long as the SD card survives it want affect the setup

        I’ve had this setup working for a long time now without any issue. The other day I set up hostapd so I could connect to the pi as a wifi access point to sync files from the camera. The problem is the vpn no longer provides internet access as I must have messed something up any ideas?

Gateway, Mask, VPN When I become connected with VPN set to a What do I need to change? (I left all the commands besides the (CHANGE IP) in the commands you had.
