@WesleyDavid: Yes, I see from that page that I erred in selecting SF for this [q]. Thanks again for your input.

@ScottPack: True! But in my case, I 'm not a professional administrator, just a normal user who knows just enough to browse gentoo-wiki.com and play with his own servers to solve my own use cases. That 's why I 'm looking just for a practical solution (understanding it may not be perfect).

@WesleyDavid: Thank you for your input, I appreciate your time. I chose SF instead of SU exactly because I expected the users here to know the answer ;) But allow me to disagree on the "no research effort" tag. I did try to find the info I need before asking but there was no clear answer on the topic for a non-expert like me. Proof? :) Well, if you take a look at the only answer below, it basically says: "It depends on various complicated things/scenarios".

@ScottPack: I think I don't want to do I semester on Cryptography before using OpenVpn. I 'm not trying to protect the Dead Sea Scrolls here...

Required specifications? No eavesdropping and protection from port-scanning inside the untrusted network. From your answer, I understand the second is not what VPN is designed to do, so I 'll figure another way for that. But I don't understand the "Yes.No. Maybe" answer regarding the encryption and negotiation types.Practically, OpenVpn uses insecure encryption?
