OpenVPN Access Server

OpenVPN Access Server

OpenVPN Access Server package comprises a set of installation and configuration tools that simplify the deployment of a VPN remote access solution. As it is based on the popular OpenVPN open-source software project, the package makes the deployed VPN compatible with OpenVPN client software, across multiple platforms and devices. While the open-source solution requires a high degree of knowledge regarding all the configuration options possible with the software, the OpenVPN Access Server offers a web-based graphical interface that is easy-to-use. It also comes with a built-in set of installer file for OpenVPN Connect Client, the client software used to connect Windows and Macs to an OpenVPN Access Server, and these come preconfigured for use immediately after installation.
