EC2 VPN OSX

This is a nice guide to get you started: http://docs.openvpn.net/how-to-tutorialsguides/virtual-platforms/amazon-ec2-appliance-ami-quick-start-guide/

Here are additional steps that I needed to take to get it working:

make sure that the your key file has 600 permissions (chmod); otherwise you will get the error message: Permission denied (publickey).

when ssh-ing make sure to include the root username:
ssh -v -i /path-to-your-key/vpn.pem root@ip-adr

after connecting to your server through ssh make sure to set passwd by:
passwd openvpn

to configure openvpn client on (mac osx) go to:
your-vpn-ip/?src=connect

and download client software; as well as connection settings (profile); that you will need to import into your client later.

 

if you change ip of vpn server you may need to reset hosts on your machine:

ssh-keygen -R YOUR-VPN-IP-ADDR
