Re: [Openvpn-users] vpn without encryption?

To disable encryption use the "--cipher none" option.  Just remember
that the payload of the VPN traffic will be sent in the clear and any
network link between the 2 peers can see traffic in this mode of
operation.

Even with encryption disabled, authentication will still be enabled by
default, which will verify that the OpenVPN packet has not been
altered since it was sent.  If you are sending traffic over a public
network I would highly recommend leaving this enabled, but you can
turn it off using the "--auth none" option.

For further details, consult the manpage under the section titled
"Data Channel Encryption Options"
