I have OpenVPN running in a jail, although in this case I think it is configured as a client to work with a commercial VPN service. I don't follow what the 'untangle' is for. I'll wait for the write-up!I would be happy to write it up, it is just one more approach to access network resources.
As far as running it on your freenas box, I am sure there are ways to get openvpn (for example) running in a jail, but in this case the Untangle software that I use sits on a dedicated box/appliance. Within its guts are the OpenVPN server so I don't need to worry about installing it on something else.
I have not even considered if their software would run in a jail...I doubt it since it is designed to be stand alone, but I have heard of people running it as a VM, so maybe it would be possible.
