Here's where I collect my 'learnings' on setting up and operating OpenVPN.
Handy Command Lines
Restart OpenVPN server, to re-load config file:
sudo service openvpn restart
OpenVPN Always Connects Twice or Connects, Drops, Connects, Drops, Connects...
I set up my OpenVPN system and went to make my initial connection. It connected! And dropped, and connected and stayed connected. In fact, every time I told the client to connect, it would connect, then drop, then reconnect. Weird. Usable. A little slow. A mystery.
