I don't see how one would give you problems with the other. With openvpn, it depends on how you set it up as to if you are joining the remote network, or just the remote machine. The same with the end making the connection. (Are you using a bridged connection on one or both ends, or have you set up IP tables and routing to do the same thing?) With ssh it is usually a machine to machine connection, but you can also get fancy with port forwarding over ssh. I used to forward port 25 over an ssh connection so that my outgoing mail was coming from the "local" machine as far as the mail server on the remote machine was concerned.
