OpenVPN: One user per computer or per person?
I have the OpenVPN server running, and it works well! Much easier than trying to make it work on a DD WRT jobber.
My question is this: When setting up user profiles, do I need one per computer that is connected, or one per person? In other words, I have an iPhone and a Macbook pro that I use. Will the server let them simultaneously connect with the same authentication? Or do I need one for the Macbook and one for the iPhone for them to access the network at the same time?
If you want to allow multiple connections per user go to the server settings and check this option.
I usually create a user account for each device - that way, if one gets lost/stolen, you can just revoke the account for that device, rather than having to put new configs on everything else that shared the same profile.
