(No feedback in actual thread for a month, thought I might open the questions to the full forum:)

With regard to this guide:

Relevant data to use later in this tutorial ( use your own, this is just for reference )
  1. Home Network: 192.168.1.0/24 ( LAN where is your FreeNAS )
  2. NAT Network: 10.8.0.0/24 ( virtual LAN between VPN clients and your LAN )
  3. Domain: nas.mydomain.com
  4. VPN Server Port: 1194 UDP
  5. VPN Outside Access Port: 443 UDP
  6. Certificate Authority Password: Password1
  7. Bibi40k Client Certificate Password: Password2
• How complex should Password1 and Password2 be?

8 chars? 12? 16+?
Upper and lowercase?
Numbers?
Symbols?

• What are alternative NAT addresses one might use (and why was the default value specifically selected)?
• What are alternative VPN server port one might use (and why was the default value specifically selected)?
• What are alternative VPN outside access port one might use (and why was the default value specifically selected)?
• What are alternatives to Bibi40k (why was it selected as the default)?

Did you get any answers to your questions?
No.

Also, I believe that I unknowingly repeated part of this thread in the Networking forum.
I looked to see if I posted this in my profile under "Find all threads by itskando", and
I have confirmed that this and all other new threads are not appearing.

Where should I post this forum bug?
