If I were going to write an article about setting up openvpn with a
VPS - could I start by assuming the reader can purchase a VPS with
Fedora (or CentOS) installed (or get a small free one from a Certain Provider)?
The scenario, which I've encountered multiple times in both homes and
with small business ISPs, is that the ISP not only does not provide IPv6
itself, but takes active steps to prevent use of normal alternate
IPv6 providers (e.g. blocking protocol 41). Thus, a VPN is the only
solution for IPv6 connectivity.
The difficulty is that you would normally have a gateway (running Fedora
or CentOS, of course) for the home network. An article could just cover
connecting a mobile laptop to a Fedora/CentOS VPS running OpenVPN server
over random internet (via Wifi/mobile/etc).
