I tried using webmin OpenVPN to start it but it does not work.
No idea how to go about this. I tried this command '/etc/init.d/openvpn start
' but it does not work unlike in Ubuntu Server.
There should be an /etc/rc.d/rc.openvpn if not use that one

ls *.pid 1&>2 /dev/null

echo "No openvpn process is running."
for process in `ls *.pid` ; do
echo Process `cat $process` is running...
