you can only use openvpn without certificates in a ptp (point-to-point) configuration
like here https://openvpn.net/index.php/open-sour ... howto.html

PTP is no problem. Problem is copying files, in this example static key. I need some solution without any copying files between sides. Thank you!

:-) Greate!
as I've already written

In documentation of OpenVpn - here https://openvpn.net/index.php/open-sour ... npage.html is clearly written so OVPN support non-encrypted tunnels. Here in DESCRIPTION part:

OpenVPN supports conventional encryption using a pre-shared secret key (Static Key mode) or public key security (SSL/TLS mode) using client & server certificates. OpenVPN also supports non-encrypted TCP/UDP tunnels.

Thank you for your answer.

Aha... Blablabla and solution... Nothing :-( If you really knew was this topic on three posts. My stupid question, Your fast reply with solution with caution for me where the solution is and the remorse that I should read it first and finally my apology. Thats all.
