OpenVPN Module

This module will install and configure an openvpn server and/or openvpn client files


Server configuration

openvpn::server { 'customer_vpn':
  vpn_network        => "",
  vpn_server_ip      => "",
  vpn_netmask        => "',
  local_network      => "",
  local_netmask      => "",
  domain             => "mydomain.local",
  customer_long_name => "Alkivi Super Long Name",
  customer_fqdn      => "",

This will do the typical install, configure and service management. Class openvpn is automatically included, but need to change that. Automatic forwarding from vpn to local network is put in place using alkivi-iptables package and sysctl configuration
