How many openvpn server [Solved]



  • Hi all,

    how many vpn server can i configured? let say 172.16.39.0/28 port 1194, 172.16.40.0/28 port 1195 and so on.



  • This is only limited by hardware (cpu, memory), not by pfSense and it's rather be limited by the number of connections.



  • As an example I run a box with 8 OpenVPN servers (mix of Remote and Peer-Peer) as well as 24+ OpenVPN clients simultaneously.

    3GB RAM 2.4GHz Dual core CPU, no major packages.  Typical CPU load < 15%

    ok now i understand.. means that it depends on hardware to handle those all vpn server and client.

  • That's the basic idea, although I wouldn't suggest the hardware I'm running is particularly high powered (or even new for that matter, 7+ years old).

    I have learned that more memory is an asset as well - again within limits.
    512MB is tight in some scenarios (I still have one box with 384MB! ), 1GB is good, 2GB is great, 3GB+ is fantabulous.

    The packages caveats always apply, asking the box to do more than route and basic firewall and/or VPN adds to the required resources.

    When you get to the Snort/Suricata, Clamv, setups a whole different set of parameters get invoked that are best described in their respective forums.
