Hi Andrew,

You don't need to install openvpn. The VPN tunnel will happen from your
SCIONLab virtual machine to the attachment point. Your VM will run openvpn
and connect your VM (and your AS) to the attachment point automatically.
Please check
you have problems; come back to us if you can't solve them though.

2) Can I run local topology and somehow connect to SCION Lab without going

The local topology is mainly used to test things. It cannot connect your
host(s) in your AS(es) to SCIONLab.

I hope to have clarified a bit your doubts.
Best regards,

Juan A.
