This can be done by routing the second VPN over the first. Lets say we have a VPN with the gw and a second VPN with the server address than we have to set a route for the second one with route -n add (Do not set a setting that sends all traffic over the first VPN!). Now we can tell the OS with the routing table which VPN to use. Let us we want to connect over the first VPN and over the second. We use route -n add and route -n add etc.
