Searching for "openvpn server" puked with "keywords too common."

Looking over the documentation here, Viscosity looks great for running as a client on my laptop. What I need, however, is a compatible server package to run on my home Mac. I'm not seeing that there's any way to set Visc to do so. Does anyone know of similar GUI packages that set up an OVPN server on Mac OS X? Or do I have to resort to a command-line install of some sort?

Hi djacobs,

Well we're working on a server version of Viscosity, however I'm afraid it's still a fair way off (Snow Leopard really slowed our road map down!). I don't know of any similar packages for Mac, however if you're happy to try installing a full package (or run it in VMWare/Parallels) you could try something like pfSense. pfSense provides a web based GUI for running an OpenVPN server.
