Welcome aboard.

I think you should consider using a more up to date version. ;)

Using the latest version of an O/S is always 'recommended practice' to keep vulnerabilities at bay.
(2.5 is quite old & uses a different packaging system to that used now.)

As far as I know, openvpn is not included software, so will have to be installed by yourself.
(The old way is pkg_add openvpn, the new way is pkg install openvpn.)

Take a look here,

(GhostBSD did have a network manager, but I think there may have been a problem with it, & believe it is being worked upon.)

The old pkg is no longer used by the upstream FreeBSD - another reason to use a more up to date system.

Edit: There were a great many changes to the way the system operated when version 10 of FreeBSD came out.
