He's right, i've deployed openvpn in many weird places and it works almost out 
of the box  :)

I agree that the ssl key generation is a bit odd to do at first but once you 
get used to it it's just a simple task like anything else.

Here i wrote a small article about me liking openvpn and all, but does include 
a small procedure and explanation of terminology used for ssl config.

The page is in french so i translated it with google translate.
