The user wants a client to access their OpenWrt router without the possibility of being 'snooped'.  That is, the user can already access the router, but (say) over a 'public' network, such as the Internet (different subnets), or a Wifi Hotspot (same subnet).  The user wants a client to access their OpenWrt router without the possibility of being 'snooped'.  That is, the user can already access the router, but (say) over a 'public' network, such as the Internet (different subnets), or a Wifi Hotspot (same subnet).

**Scenario 0** allows you to most easily implement an OpenVPN tunnel (i.e. at home), which can then (relatively easily) be switched to **Scenario 1**, which itself is the //basis// of most 'real-world' OpenVPN tunnel configurations.  You can either start with **Scenario 0**, and switch to **Scenario 1** when you've got it working, or start directly with **Scenario 1** (and switch back to **Scenario 0** for troubleshooting). **Scenario 0** allows you to most easily implement an OpenVPN tunnel (i.e. at home), which can then (relatively easily) be switched to **Scenario 1**, which itself is the //basis// of most 'real-world' OpenVPN tunnel configurations.  You can either start with **Scenario 0**, and switch to **Scenario 1** when you've got it working, or start directly with **Scenario 1** (and switch back to **Scenario 0** for troubleshooting).
 +==== Overview of the process ==== 
 +Installing and (more importantly) configuring an OpenVPN tunnel consists of the following process: 
 +  - Creating and distributing the PKI certificates and their keys to the server and the clients 
 +  - Configuring the network (i.e. devices, interfaces, and firewall) 
 +  - Configuring, starting and testing the VPN tunnel
