    So is there any listing I missed on what differs with the VPN variant?

    One I noticed is that SD/MMC card support in standard, is missing in VPN.

    Also, it may not be obvious to some people that the OpenVPN included is the "client" version. Or, at least that's all the GUI interface is setup for. I haven't played around yet with it from the command-line to see if it's got the code for server in the executable as well.

    I did have to roll my own config file since the server I connect to uses and requires ns-cert-type server and the GUI didn't give me any way to add that option to config. Had to login, modify /tmp/openvpn/openvpn.conf and run the program again by hand. Once I did that it worked fabulously well. Had it connecting to an OpenVPN server on a Linux box at another house, routing packets like one big happy network.

    It might be better to load mini or standard perhaps, and then JFFS2 and load the OpenVPN package file if you are intending to have a server you can't use the GUI interface anyways.
