Using only one client certificate for multiple users?
It would be difficult for us to generate a cerificate for each user.
In order for each user to use the same certificate for each user (just with different usernames & passwords), would I need to check the 'Duplicate Connections' box in the server setup?

what package or application are you using these certs?
I'm using an OpenVPN instance in 'Remote Access' mode, adding a user in User Manager - selecting the same certificate for each, then exporting a Windows installer package use the Client Exporter package. We were hoping to use the same Windows installer package for all users.
If you select the duplicate option, that will work. It's a bad idea though, if the certificate is ever compromised you'll have to reissue clients to everyone instead of just sticking the compromised certificate in a CRL.
