Yes, OpenVPN supports setting up a SOCKS proxy as well. However, it's important to note that SOCKS proxy settings are not directly pushed by the OpenVPN server to the client like HTTP and HTTPS proxy settings.
Here is how some steps:
Configure the SOCKS proxy separately on your client device and specific client Ex.. web browser or a SOCKS proxy-capable application.
When you establish the OpenVPN connection and configure the SOCKS proxy,
The client traffic will first go through the SOCKS proxy, and then the VPN connection, Check both anonymity and security.
Note:SOCKS proxies are not encrypted like VPNs, so your data will be visible to the SOCKS proxy provider unless you're using additional encryption mechanisms.
