4.0 out of 5 stars Straight to the point 9 May 2011
By Laurent
Format:Paperback
The book is 100% what it's supposed to be : A Cookbook and no more, no less

The book is organized in recipes that will cover most of the uses of OpenVPN and give concretes examples. For the review, I forced myself to follow it to configure a VPN connection for a customer and I had almost all the info required.

Obviously, you will need to know the basics of Networking, VPN's and certificates but it's certainly a resource I will keep in my toolbox to refresh my mind when I need it.

2.0 out of 5 stars Some value, but ... 14 Jan 2012
By Small Tech Company - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book has value. However, it's also a bit disappointing in that it leaves out some of the most difficult issues relative to getting OpenVPN working. Some of the most daunting issues are related to firewalls (relative to the TUN and TAP adapters) as well as other issues. None of this is discussed in a meaningful way. Also, this book is written as if the GUI interface didn't exist. If you try to run the command scripts that ship with OpenVPN per this book's discussion on Windows, ... you'll get lots of errors generating your keys. Why? because the command shell must be invoked using "Run as Administrator" for any of this to work properly. Little gotchas like this slow progress. The book ignores them. It's almost a simple repackaging of the documentation already available on the website. Again, ... there are good things here. There are also some gaping holes. Proceed with caution. It's a bit pricey given that it's incomplete.

4.0 out of 5 stars New to networking? This will get your VPN off the ground! 12 Nov 2013
By T. Caradonna - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I know very little about networking, but I knew I needed a VPN to "place-shift" my internet traffic safely. OpenVPN has the most secure connection when properly setup.

This book has examples and builds on them to teach new options. It covers some of the biggest pitfalls/problems, and elegantly explains what's going wrong in a way that isn't too technical. I think anyone can follow this book. The author is also well known to participate in forums online as well.

This book is worth the money. You'll be very happy with your OpenVPN server!
5.0 out of 5 stars Just the yummy part of the sandwich 21 Jun 2011
By Sentinel - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
If you're still at the "how do I install" OpenVPN stage, this book is not for you just yet. The author freely admits that in the "Who this book is for", so I do consider it a point against it. You should also have some networking knowledge as the author suggests.

Right after you have installed and played with OpenVPN a little, this book is awesome. I had what I thought was a complete setup, but this book brought out a whole note card full of other things for me to look at. It is very concisely written. The author has also distilled the common problems and solutions found in user groups. I will happily be an even heavier user of OpenVPN after reading this book.
