Im looking for a simple VPN server for Ubuntu Server, for use at home.
I want to be able to use standard Windows and Android phones to access the VPN, so dont want to install addition software, so I belive that limits me to PPTP, L2TP etc.
I only use it to attach to my home web/file server, so only need to use Samba, FTP, HTTP/S through it, but would like it to use DNS as well.
I looked at some software but found it too difficult to get working, and kept falling over. If possible Id like it to work with Webmin (for adding and disabling users). I did find some guides, but most were out of date, or didnt help troubleshoot errors.
I used to use Windows 2000 as a VPN server, but need to upgrade to a supported platorm, and cannot justify the cost for Windows Server, so moving most of my apps over to Linux.
Has anyone got any suggestions/experience with any VPN server software on Ubuntu Server?
