Here's the gist of installing openvpn

1. Install the openvpn software and easy-rsa
2. Use easy-rsa to generate the certificates for server and then generate a
certificate for one or more clients
3. On the server, enable the proper iptables configuration to allow nat ip
4. On the server, open up the ports for openvpn (and make sure it's the
correct proto)
5. Generate the client config specific to your network
6. Connect with the client

helpful, though it is missing the iptabels rules:
