... if they're on the same lan why do you want an openvpn connection between them? I don't think openvpn does what you expect...

Yes, but if you're on the same lan... just connect via rdp or vnc. A vpn is pointless on a lan since the point of a vpn is to connect disconnected remote lans over a wan.
