Vyatta - Remote Access VPN Lab

Hi again this is the setup:

This lab details setting up NAT on vyatta routers, OpenVPN with TLS authentication, basic firewall setup and all the steps inbetween.

Here is the video:

Bit of a newbe question, but why are you using a second Vyatta router at R10? I'm trying to set this up with a single VPN1 and a laptop coming in through the internet. Is that wrong?
What would I have to change to do this?

I am using a second router R10 so that you can get practise using things like NAT and setting up a vyatta router in general. It is also there to simulate that you will never, outside of a lab be directly connected to the vyatta box.

That being said, you dont really need it, its not wrong to remove it and will work perfectly without it.
However I would recommend you keep the lab as it is and get everything working, then once you are confident then start chopping and changing things.

Thanks for that...

Now that I have it all set up like yours, I want to connect over the internet. What do I need to do here? I have to set up NAT and a firewall, I guess. I have already set these up for my web server...what do I need to do for OpenVPN?
