Skip the certificate exchange

Post by citricks » Wed Mar 13, 2019 4:02 pm

In my project, I use blockchain and a custom script to exchange the certificates between client and server before I try the OpenVpn connection. I would like to set up the connection afterwards without the initial exchange of certificates (because it's already done).
Is it possible with just an option? Or should I custom the way the protocol work?
I hope what I say is clear :?
