Greetings,
         I am currently trying to set up an OpenVPN server with a Cisco ASA 5520 as the firewall.
The question is I'm a bit fuzzy on the how. Any info or guide on how would be fantastic!
         I get that the public IP needs to be routed through the ASA to the OVPN. Where in the chain makes the most sense? ( OVPN connected to the ASA port? OVPN inside on the client side?)
         I know this is most likely a basic question but where I have not done is setup before I want to check my thinking.

Thanks!

If you want to restrict LAN access for OpenVPN users, and cannot manage that on your OpenVPN box, then putting it into a DMZ makes sense. In any other case just put it into your LAN.
