OpenVPN Server

I've tried following the Basic setup, along with various youtube videos, but I'm not able to make any headway. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

I've installed both the openvpn-openssl and luci-app-openvpn packages without any hitches. I've also been able to configure the VPN under Services tab using "Server configuration for Ethernet bridge VPN" option. However, I'm not able to have it "start" after filling out the configuration detail. Nor am I am able to see it listed under Network-->Interfaces. It feels like I'm missing a few steps, but I'm not sure what those are.

You can try a simplified version which downloads the code from the wiki and runs it as a script.
If the issue persists, follow the troubleshooting section of the how-to and post the diagnostics here.
