Hi,
I am trying to put openvpn into an embedded linux box. After having
configured and compiled openssl and openvpn, it works fine. BUT the
memory footprint ist quite large compared with the applications size and
the available flash space. After omitting unnecessary features via
configure and after stripping the binary still needs 1.6 MB, mostly
caused by openssl components.
Has anybody succeeded in minimizing openvpn space requirements? For
example, I don't see how I can drop unneeded crypto ciphers -- why
include DES, DES3 or AES if I only use Blowfish?

TIA + regards
   Dirk
