How to Install OpenVPN in 15 minutes on and Connect using OSX


OpenVPN is pretty much the most secure protocol available that is easy to setup and wildly supported across all major devices. Unlike other protocols such as IKEv2 you’ll find that OpenVPN is supported on Mac OSX, Windows, Linux, Android, Windows Phone, etc.

These guys are competitors to DigitalOcean and provide slightly higher specifications with their cloud instances. I will write another article showing the main differences between the two.

Let’s get started

This guide can be used on any Ubuntu platform but I’ll specifically be talking about setting up on (competitor to DigitalOcean).

Step 1 – Create your cloud instance

I will be using Ubuntu 16.04 x64 on the $5 per month plan which includes 768mb ram and 1TB bandwidth per month which is more than enough for a personal VPN.
