Weird question but can Debian run pptp and OpenVPN-AS at the same time?
Reason? pptp is required on my cell/router but on Windows systems OpenVPN client works best!! hence I want to have both in the same box. Thoughts?

They use different devices, so it's possible.

It is possible, but i believe openvpn is not the best solution for vpn. a ssh/socks proxy gives good granular control on app level.
I would be interested to know why ppl prefer openvpn unless you need complex setups like bridge subnets or something.
Because it tunnels all data, not just secular apps who 'support' a proxy.
And that is, at times, very necessary.
I believe when using SSH you can only have one connection at the same time.
So, using OpenVPN is better (at least for me :p)
I've tried to run both PPTP and OpenVPN-As on my debian at the same time successfully.
