I managed to successfully configure openvpn on my drive following instructions here. This required previous installation of optware which I also managed successfully through this link. BTW, thanks so much for such beautifully written and easy to follow instructions!
So, the only thing really bothering me so far is that I've noticed my drive no longer goes into standby when not in use. Just in case, no established openvpn connections left idle at all…
I wonder if the cause is openvpn itself or something else from optware. Any leads? Anyone experiencing this issue?
Thanks a bunch!
