When running openvpn in Fedora, the service needs to be configured first. Create a file in the /etc/openvpn directory. It can be called anything but must end with .conf. For example, create a file called /etc/openvpn/myserver.conf. There are plenty of guides on-line on what to put in your configuration file. Now you can start the service like this:

systemctl enable openvpn@myserver
systemctl start openvpn@myserver

The @myserver must match the name of your configuration file (excluding the .conf).

All you need to do to allow a remote peer to change it's IP address, is add this line to your server configuration:
