I'd like to set up my handset to be able to VPN into my home network.

At home I have the Buffalo WZR-HP-G300NH wireless router running dd-wrt firmware. My handset is Nexus One running the latest (as of this writing) CyanogenMod7 ROM nightly build (Android version 2.3.4)

Preferably, I'd like a step-by-step guide on configuring OpenVPN on the router and on the handset.

I've been interested in trying this for a little while, but for now I have just been using SSH. The guide I've been eyeing on the subject is here, which is using OpenVPN to DD-WRT on Android.

It seems pretty straightforward.
