Internet & LAN Over VPN Using OpenVPN – Linux Server – Windows/Linux Clients

The aim of this tutorial is to enable you to set up a little VPN that will let you do many things – but my primary goal when trying to get this to work was to allow me and my friend (who sits behind a firewalled network at University) to play the new games that would not work over Hamachi because they did not ship with LAN and required an always-on internet connection (DRM). His network also uses traffic shaping and blocks UDP packets, making online gaming impossible.
