If I create OpenVPN server on my Linux machine, can I connect to that server (from Windows) using different client for example SoftEther VPN or built-in VPN client in Windows?

Or I have to use OpenVPN client?

You would have to use the OpenVPN client since they all use different protocols. The SoftEther server however creates a server with different protocols.

SoftEther VPN protocols

  • So if I create SoftEther VPN server then I can use all other protocols as well?
