OpenVPN container - Armin@netPI - January-3rd-2021

There were noticable requests for supporting OpenVPN on netPI since years. All solutions that have been discussed in this forum were more or less not satisfying from the configuration point of view.

With help of PiVPN project, NGINX web proxy, ligthtpd web server I started an OpenVPNĀ project with the aim of being able to setup an OpenVPN server completely within a web browser session in just 5 minutes.

I put the project on GitHub at https://github.com/HilscherAutomation/netPI-openvpn and created a containter of it under https://hub.docker.com/r/hilschernetpi/netpi-openvpn.

All you need next to a netPI is an Internet Router with "port forwarding" and "dynamic DNS" support and a DNS provider granting you a public DNS name for your router.
