    Skimming through the server file you’ll also see the default IP addresses for the VPN and the location of your key files and certificates, which should be changed to properly reflect their actual names and locations

    Daniel, this is where I stubble. I don’t know where to put the changes base on my lack of knowledge of notepad++

    Will you show me?

    It seems that this is a little outdated. I am getting some errors about finding the easy-rsa file. I don’t think it is included in the newest version: http://openvpn.net/index.php/open-source/downloads.html

    I can’t even get started!
    Cmd prompt returning error message after changing directories and executing init-config command.
    I’m in C:\Program Files (x86)\OpenVPN\easy-rsa but receive this message: ‘init-config’ is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.

    What can I do to resolve this?
