OpenVPN and Juniper Netscreen 25 or Watchguard Firebox X700


I will have to establish a vpn to an other city.

As I would like to use opensource I asked the partner wich soft- hardware they use to connect to the Internet.

They use a Watchguard Firebox X700 and a Netscreen 25 box.

1.) Does anybody know if I can use OpenVPN to connect to those boxes ?
2.) If not is there any other possibility ?

All of those Firewalls either use IPSec or L2TP VPNs.
You may take a look at FreeSWAN.

OpenVPN is an SSL VPN.
