Can you run OpenVPN without keys or certificates?


Is it possible to set up an OpenVPN without having to issue keys or certificates.
All tutorials I found seem to use them.

I want just a basic username/password approach - I don't care that much about security obviously but is it at all possible?

No, you need at least the server certificate.

See Using username/password authentication as the only form of client authentication.
