Sorry, we don't provide tutorials here. I'd recommend searching Google for this - there are many, many tutorials out there on how do to this. OpenVPN is a good choice and is fairly simple to get set up.

Oh, and additionally - if you want us to be able to help you, get rid of Webmin. Learn how to do real command-line linux systems administration. – EEAA Nov 26 '12 at 14:36
Thankx for the info but it would be great if you can point me in the right direction... plus i tried webmin and honestly... cmd line is better ;) – DragoTech.Innovations Nov 26 '12 at 18:07

Maybe this Debian OpenVPN Roadwarrior Tutorial helps you to get a basic idea of the needed steps.
