Access OpenVPN from 2 different machines

openvpn

#1

When I connect to the server’s openvpn from one PC, I can’t connect to it from another using the same configuration file. Do I have to create a profile for another user and use it or is it possible to do this with the same user?
Thank you for any reply.

Hello!

OpenVPN will not let you use the same certificate on two connections at the same time (by default)

I tend to just create a new client for each connection I have. Naming them something descriptive is a great way to help you find the right one to remove if you need to revoke (lost phone etc).

I name mine:
john.phone
mark.desktop
mark.laptop

etc.

hope this helps :slight_smile:
