DHCP configuration

the machines by default get hostname and domainname from the College's DHCP server. This needs to be overridden otherwise the nfsidmap utility gets confused. To do so place something like this in  /etc/dhcp/dhclient-eth1.conf :

interface "eth1"  
     supersede host-name "positano-vpn";
     supersede domain-name "";  

OpenVPN Configuration

Make sure /etc/openvpn/client.conf looks like this (remote is specified by IP):

dev tun
proto udp
remote 1194

;resolv-retry infinite


# add l8r
;user nobody
;group nogroup


ca /etc/openvpn/ca.crt
cert /etc/openvpn/positano.crt
key /etc/openvpn/positano.key
