We had some difficulty putting OpenVPM on the Win2K server. Oddly the MS
VPN could somehow use DHCP to hand out an IP even though the server has
no DHCP server running (that is on our router) and had no DHCP client
OpenVPN Server needs the local DHCP client to be running. Oddly without
the DHCP client running the VPN client gets a 10.x.x.x IP and the Server
Linpus seems fine and the router accepts the OpenVPN on port 80 and
forwards that on 1194 to the Server inside the firewall.
Some people we work with however only run MS PPTP VPN and we still don't
know why this doesn't go on Aspire / Linpus. Maybe MPPE missing from Kernel?
A bargain at €145 inc postage. The HDD model is a bigger case, so you
can't put the 2.5" SATA HDD as an upgrade, though it's reputed to have
space for a 1.8" PATA.
The 1.8" PATA HDD are not plentiful, as people either go for SSD or
bigger 2.5". The 1.8" HDD size may be doomed.
