Hi,

We have a call centre setup with an ubuntu server  as a DC box. We need to access our clients internal application . They have provided us openvpn keys. I am confused how can i have all 120 users access to that application without installing openvpn on each and every computer.

Please advice !!!!

In any case you need a single device acting as router for OpenVPN. OpenVPN should run under Ubuntu, but you need to set up routing and probably NATting there, too (OpenVPN itself does not provide NAT). The remote site needs to have unique IP addresses.
I know how to do that with Windows machines, and have heard of IPCop and pfSense, but that is the end of my knowledge.

It is a bit tricky on a client machine, but you can see a how-to in my article:
http://www.experts-exchange.com/OS/Microsoft_Operating_Systems/A_350-Using-remote-client-connections-VPN-ISDN-PPTP-aso-for-routing-in-Windows.html
That also shows how to do that on-demand. You do not need that part, if the OpenVPN connection is open all time.

In future, if somebody supplies a useful link to an article, please accept that post (at least in addition), and vote for the "Was this article helpful?" in the article itself. That way the author of the article (in this case it is me) gets some points and improved statistics. That is even more important if somebody else would have posted the link.
