    SOLVED Is openVPN a standalone VPN or a tool for FreeNAS to connect to VPN?

    I assume there's no free lunch with VPNs, that one must pay a VPN provider for use. I wanted to enable remote SSH and Plex use and it's been recommended that I setup a VPN. This is not something that freeNAS handles on its own, correct?

    SOLVED What does VNET serve? Does Plex require a VNET?

    Someone in this thread suggested that I enable VNET for my Plex jail.

I didn't find much in the way...

    Connect two FreeNAS units using OpenVPN?

    Hello all, I'm wondering if it is possible to connect two FreeNAS units over the WAN using OpenVPN. To avoid spending more money on a VPN router, could I install OpenVPN to jails on each FreeNAS unit and then treat one as the server and one as the client?
