I strongly advise against using OpenVPN-Clients or anything that changes
network or firewall within a VServer. To be successfull you need to giv
the guest as many capabilities, you can as well just start it on the
host. Remember, the guest has no networking on its own, if you start the
openvpn client there, you still route the whole host.

However, I still recommend running OpenVPN on the host.
