[Solved] Open VPN +Wi-Fi hotspot - Debian - S3phi40T - 03-14-2018


I have combined 2 tutorials and managed to run hotspot that connects me via OpenVPN.

Pro Tips 
- verify Wi-Fi interface name as ROCK64 USB WIFI 802.11B/G/N (RTL8188EU) instead of default wlan0 gets wlx0013ef801932 so any references have to be changed.

I don't take any credit for the tutorials content. I just confirm it works like a charm Big Grin
