@schroeder the page you linked also states the following though: "Routing also provides a greater ability to selectively control access rights on a client-specific basis."

comment Why should I use easy-rsa when using OpenVPN?
@Anti-weakpasswords at the moment, my OpenVPN is using certificate authentication and tls-auth generated with openvpn --genkey --secret ta.key. However, I don't have any entries for --auth and --cipher, would you consider this a big security risk?

Fair enough, but one question: how would you use a firewall to improve security in this case? After all, the OpenVPN port is open, what would you filter on?

@cpast that's correct, I am using a local VPN server at the moment and was thinking about moving it on the router
