Hi All,

Is it possible to connect to a different VPN server using openVPN as a client ?

I mean, the server running the VPN server has configured itself using different software other than OpenVPN daemon ?


Can OpenVPN client work with such cross VPN softwares ?

if you mean : can an OpenVPN client connect to a non-OpenVPN server,
then the answer is simply "No".
OpenVPN uses its own protocol, which is not compatible with other VPN
services like IPSec, SSLVPN, PPTP etc.

SoftetherVPN is "multi protocol vpn server".
it emulates openvpn protocol (not 100% actually).
