OpenVPN Setup without modular kernel possible?

I have actually been following that tutorial and using my own knowledge I managed to get OpenVPN working by recompiling the kernel myself.

That tutorial is a really in-depth way of doing things and for anyone looking to do it, you should really follow this one.

Thanks for the help guys.

Have a look at this website:

It includes instructions if you can't modprobe the tun module.

Hi Kaotix

Yes the OVH Kernel is Static, however the easiest thing to is to compile a Kernel that supports modules. There are few guides on here if you search about recompiling the kernel.

I am trying to get OpenVPN working on my new Kimsufi but as the default Debian OS on my server is the OVH one and is not modular I have been so far unable to get OpenVPN working at all.

Can any offer a solution to this or an alternative to OpenVPN maybe?
I'd really appreciate some help.
