Can we run openvpn without TLS, is that secured?

I removed :
from server.conf

tls-auth ta.key 0
# This file is secret

from the server.conf

is it dangerous ?

TLS is an additional layer of authentication and excrytion, used when signing on and authenticating, I don't use it in my setup as you can see in the configs I posted on your other thread. I don't see a need for it at least not in my situation. The VPN connection is still encrypted by SSL.
