I followed the instructions on setting up remote VPN's and it worked wonderfully.  I am having one problem though - i have come back to create a new client cert using build-key but when i run it i am getting an error listing a bunch of options - almost like it doesn't know what to do.  Does anyone have any suggestions on what I might do to be able to build a new key that will connect to our existing server (and its already generated keys)?  I know all of the files that were originally generated still exist.

if i remember right you just need to run the vars before using the build-key again.
We do what we must, because we can.

Can you describe the exact steps you took?

I ran it again, step by step, and its working now.  It is simply running vars, then build-key <machinename>.  Evidently I didn't type something correctly. 

Thanks for your help.

I already mailed him. No answer.
In the meantime you can find it here:
http://www.pfsense.org/mirror.php?section=tutorials/openvpn/pfsense-ovpn.pdf

Also note that on page 21 is a typo.
The field "Interface IP" should be 192.168.10.0/24 and NOT 192.168.1.0/24
