Multiple Site-to-Site Question about ports



  • Hello,

    I have a functioning site-to-site OpenVPN with the server running embedded version 1.0.1 and the client using embedded version 1.2-RC2. I would like to add an additional site-to-site and I have some questions:

    1. Do I need to use another port for the new client (currently using tcp 1194) on the server?
    2. Even if I dont have to use a second port, is it a better idea to do it anyway?

    Thanks,

    P.



  • Currently you need different ports for different connections.

    But you could setup a PKI with a single server.



  • Thanks for your reply, but I dont understand what you mean by single server and PKI.

    can you explain a little please?

    Thank you,

    P.



  • PKI = Public key Infrastructure.

    I assume you are using shared keys.
    With a PKI you use a server key, and multiple client keys (and certificates).
    Like this multiple clients can connect to single server.
    In your case the clients would be other sites which connect to the mainoffice.



  • OK, I understand now. Thanks for your help I appreciate it ;D
