Hello, I used an asus router to run an openvpn server and i can successfully connect from a pc so I know it is working. What I would like to do is run the dd-wrt x86 software on a PC so I can use it as a remote openvpn client that will auto connect and then I would connect the pc to a switch and give clients access to the openvpn server network.
I am running mine off of a 512 MB tf card no hard drive in the machine so yes you can run it off of a usb/flash card my set up is a Biostar g31m7 motherboard with a intel core2 6600 and 2 gigs of ram with a quad port Sun mgicrosystems nic with a cisco 8 port switch(four of which are used by my WHS2011) and two wireless access points runs great I am running version from July 7 2017 as policy based vpn doesn't work on the newer versions at least not using gui
As for install I use Hard disk low level format as you have to zero out the card if there is a problem, you can get that here hddguru.com/ and Rufus (https://rufus.akeo.ie/) to put the image on the card put it in the machine make sure it boots from card and thats it
