Seems you get the F meaning :-)

Hmmm. So  you propose to install  OpenVPN on the H  host only and
not  on the  F  one (where  I  lack admins  privileges to  modify
network setup) ? Care to elaborate a bit on your setup then ?

How  would I  handle https  connections  for the  H https  server
already listening on 443 ?

This  becomes a  bit off-topic  so  maybe we  should continue  in
private and I'll post a summary if I can setup a working config.
