OpenVPN server mode usage?


For several years OpenVPN has provided a reliable tunnel 
between two machines, Dalton and Joule.  Ref.
Dalton has a static address.  Joule has a dynamic address, 
usually available by reference to joule.yi.org.  This 
depended upon a DDNS server at yi.org.  

Recently the DDNS server hasn't been updating and I've 
wondered about other configurations.  One possibility appears  
to be for Dalton to run in server mode and for Joule to be an 
OpenVPN client.  So I'm thinking to remove option "remote joule.yi.org" 
and add "mode server" in the configuration file on Dalton.
No such thing as "mode client".  Is a client connection 
profile necessary on Joule when there is only one server?

Any comments or criticisms or suggestions before I blunder 

Thanks,          ... Peter E.
