Creating a do-it-yourself VPN that you manage and access on your own terms is not as difficult as you might think. Telecommuting, working from the road, and the overall gig economy are all trappings of the modern collaborative, mobile, and always connected enterprise workforce. However, while there are measurable benefits to a remotely connected workforce, there are also significant security risks to mitigate. For example, protecting and securing the transmission of sensitive data across the internet between your home office network and the larger enterprise network requires, at minimum, a virtual private network VPN. In many situations, the VPN is provided by the enterprise, but an independent contractor operating in the gig economy may have to provide VPN services for themselves. With the help of cloud computing services like Microsoft Azure , creating a do-it-yourself VPN that you manage and access on your own terms is not as difficult as you might think. All it takes is a virtual machine running the right software. This example assumes you already have a valid Microsoft Azure subscription.

Remember on Windows to quote pathnames and use double backslashes, e. If you want to run multiple OpenVPN instances on the same machine, use a different port number for each one. You will need to open up this port on your firewall. Use "dev tap0" if you are ethernet bridging and have precreated a tap0 virtual interface and bridged it with your ethernet interface. On non-Windows systems, you can give an explicit unit number, such as tun0. On Windows, use "dev-node" for this. Non-Windows systems usually don't need this. Each client and the server must have their own cert and key file. The server and all clients will use the same ca file. See the "easy-rsa" directory for a series of scripts for generating RSA certificates and private keys.

Anyone on the world can communicate to the Internet via your computer as a relay. Do not enable the VPN Gate Relaying Function unless you fully understood and agreed all the warnings and risks about running the relay. When you are running the VPN Gate Relaying Function on your company's network, then any person's communication to Internet hosts will be relayed via your company's network. If you company's network has a policy which prohibits to run such a relaying program, you have a risk to violate the policy. Therefore, you have better to take an explicit permission from the network administrator of your company in advance to enabling the VPN Gate Relaying Function. You must enable the function after fully understanding. System services always run in the background. System services usually do not appear on the computer display. Then your computer system is booted, system services automatically start in the background even before you or other users log in. You can activate, deactivate, start, or stop system services using the functions of the OS anytime.
