Multiple users - one OpenVPN server



  • Hello all! I have searched this forum, but haven't quite found a clear answer to my question.

    I have a pfSense server with an OpenVPN connection and I'd like to create more users that use this same OpenVPN server. I used the wizard to create this server and have the client export working properly. I've tried to create a user through the "Client" tab, but I can't figure out how to get a .p12, or if I need to do it another way. I've created the user and user certificate, but just unsure how to attack the 2nd client for OpenVPN server.

    Thank you in advance!



  • you need to create additional users using system–>user manager

    for a youtube-tutorial that seems to be fairly accurate: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VdAHVSTl1ys



  • I've already done that, so that's all I need to do? The users will use the same client export package, but will sign in with their individual user names? Is this correct?



  • The only problem with that link, is it's showing how to setup 1 user and 1 OpenVPN server. I'm trying to figure out how to add multiple different users to the same server instance. I don't want to have tons of VPN servers running. All in total, I will have 25 VPN users and at least 2 site to site VPNs (which will be on separate servers).



  • just add more users with the same CA as the openvpn server.
