Sounds nicely. I think that this could lead us to a wizard, configuring
OpenVPN for beginners. Still the experienced admins want to have as much
features as possible to configure through the GUI. Another thought would
be to have hidden options for them. Problem with hidden options is, that
they have to be documented anywhere and the implemtation is almost exact
the same as for a visible option in the GUI. The only thing you gain is
a less complex GUI. On the other hand lots of asking for howto do sth.

Thanks, Kris. I'm always looking forward to hear suggestions from other

BTW: Is an "Ethernet tunnel" a useful scenario on a gateway?
