I'm failing miserably to set up OpenVPN (or any vpn for that matter!!). More to the point, I can set it up with no problems... but making it work is another matter.
The client end are Macs using Tunnelblick.
Has anyone out there succeeded?
Are there any straightforward tutorials that you think might be helpful?
ANY advise would be welcome, even if it's "dear god, use PFSense!".

I succeded. In fact, Tunnelblick seemed very easy to setup, easier than windows.

The config.ovpn file
Code:
client
float
dev tap
proto udp
port 1194
remote <<YOUR SERVER IP HERE>>
resolv-retry infinite
nobind
persist-key
persist-tun
ca <<YOUR CERT HERE>>
auth-user-pass
pull
comp-lzo

You also need the certificate from the firewall. It's on
https://<<SERVER IP>>:10443/cgi-bin/showca.cgi?type=pem
Copy it to the tunnelblick config directory

Also remember to correctly setup the rules on VPN firewall
