Script that allows the easy creation of OpenVPN endpoints in any AWS region. To create a VPN endpoint is done with a single command takes ~3 minutes. It will create the proper security groups. It spins up a tagged ec2 instance and configures OpenVPN software. Once instance is configured an OpenVPN configuration file is downloaded and ready to use. There is also functionality to see which instances are running in which region and ability to terminate the instance when done. Additional functionality includes specifying instance type, generate ssh keypairs, specify custom ami, change login user and more to come.

Ensure that you have an AWS .credentials file by running:
Then type in the following and add your keys (remove parenthesis):
[default] aws_access_key_id = (your_access_key_here) aws_secret_access_key = (your_secret_key_here)

DESCRIPTION: autovpn - On Demand AWS OpenVPN Endpoint Deployment Tool. Project found at https://github.com/ttlequals0/autovpn USAGE: ACTION [OPTIONS] -C Create VPN endpoint. -D Delete keypair from region. -G Generate new keypair. -S Get all running instances in a given region. -T Terminate a OpenVPN endpoint. -d Specify custom DNS server. (ex. 18.104.22.168) -h Displays this message. -i AWS Instance type (Optional, Default is t2.micro) t2.nano t2.micro t2.small t2.medium t2.large.** -k Specify the name of AWS keypair (Required) -m Allow multiple connections to same endpoint. -r Specify AWS Region (Required) us-east-1 us-west-1 us-east-2 us-west-2 eu-west-1 eu-west-2 eu-west-3 eu-central-1 eu-north-1 ap-southeast-1 ap-northeast-1 ap-northeast-2 ap-northeast-3 ap-southeast-2 sa-east-1 ap-east-1 ca-central-1 me-south-1 -p Specify custom OpenVPN UDP port -u Specify custom ssh user.*** -y Skip confirmations -z Specify instance id. EXAMPLES: Create OpenVPN endpoint: autovpn -C -r us-east-1 -k us-east-1_vpnkey Generate keypair in a region. autovpn -G -r us-east-1 Get running instances autovpn -S -r us-east-1 Terminate OpenVPN endpoint autovpn -T -r us-east-1 -z i-b933e00c Using custom options autovpn -C -r us-east-1 -k us-east-1_vpnkey -a ami-fce3c696 -u ec2_user -i m3.medium NOTES: * - Custom AMI may be needed if changing instance type. ** - Any instance size can be given but the t2.micro is more than enough. *** - Custom user might be need if using a custom ami. **** - AWS IAM user must have EC2 or Administrator permissions set.
