Ive got a PI so will try that route again, I did try the instructions on the net, but my Linux experience is zero and didn't manage to get it to respond on the LAN!
Ill give it another go!
Cheers for the advise re Dratek, I've looked longingly at them for years, but just couldn't justify the cost!
The BBC instructions that Michael Chare mentioned are a bit convoluted. Far easier is to run the script at http://www.pivpn.io
As long as you are able to establish an SSH session to type the initial command, the rest is an automated script and makes installing OpenVPN and configuring users a piece of cake.
Don't forget to forward the necessary port on your router.
Also another thing you can run on the same raspberry pi is pi-hole which is a network wide DNS based ad blocker. It comes with a similarly easy install script.
