Thanks for your mail.

It's clear that in preshare mode, the OpenSSL cryptogrpahy library is used. but it seems

  that the SSL cryptography library is not used in this mode.

So i still have the same question, is the  SSL protocol  used in the preshare key mode too ?

As you can see in the man page, chipher and and keysize parameters are used in Static key mode also,
and they both refer to the OpenSSL ciphers (that you can list with --show-ciphers)

I try to know if, when using OpenVPN in preshare mode, SSL is used or not ?
