Updating OpenVPN Access Server

Once OpenVPN Access Server has been installed and configured it is time to update it:

1. Go to http://openvpn.net/index.php/access-server/download-openvpn-as.html?osfamily=Ubuntu and download for Ubuntu 9 (at the time of writing, Ubuntu 9 is used as the base OS for OpenVPN AS)

 wget http://swupdate.openvpn.org/as/openvpn-as-1.8.3-Ubuntu9.amd_64.deb

2. The architecture from the OVF template is 64 bit (hence the 64 bit download of the update above) now to install it simply do:

dpkg -i openvpn-as-1.8.3-Ubuntu9.amd_64.deb

And it should update straightway:

openvpnas:~# dpkg -i openvpn-as-1.8.3-Ubuntu9.amd_64.deb
(Reading database ... 14835 files and directories currently installed.)
