    Thanks for your reply. I hope everyone had a happy holiday and has a 
happy new year.
Ok, i've downloaded everything, repackaged openvpn with my own 
configuration, it uses tun and tls keys vs. static keys. I'd like to have 
multiple configurations. Do i simply add lines similar to the office.ovpn 
line? Or is there another step i have to do? My goal is for one 
configuration to connect to a server in routed mode, while the other 
configuration, utilizing separate tls keys, connects to an entirely 
different server in bridged mode.
    This isn't specifically openvpn, but i'd like to set up Radius on 
FreeBSD so that a possible third configuration has users connecting and 
instead of keys that config uses usernames/passwords sent over the vpn for 
    Does anyone have this going?
