Well you can turn passwords off using ssh and just use the keys to
OpenSSH and OpenVPN use different ciphers. I don't think arcfour is even
listed as a cipher option for OpenVPN. The protocols are different too, so
you get different network behavior using them.
You could choose not to use ssh tunneling on your clients if you're using a
VPN, so that gets rid of the "messy". No point in an encrypted tunnel in an
encrypted tunnel. Unless of course one is clinically paranoid.
Of course using either ssh or a VPN is pretty secure as long as they're
I still don't like encrypted tunnels through my firewall that I can't
