Hello, and welcome.

OpenVPN is one of the wide variety of SSL-based VPN implementations. OpenVPN differs from most of the other SSL-based VPNs in three key ways:
  • It is free and open source.
  • It is portable, and is available for many OSes.
  • It can be deployed through many different network configurations, as it tunnels within UDP or TCP.
OpenVPN is available on OpenBSD, as a third party port/package.

Unfortunately I have not used OpenVPN in about 20 years, so I am unable to assist with your implementation problem.

You're asking about isakmpd.conf(5). That is a configuration file for isakmpd(8), which is used with IPSec, an entirely different VPN technology than OpenVPN. IPSec has its own protocols, and an introduction can be found in ipsec(4).
