Openvpn 2 servers

Hi,
Is it possible on 1 vps (kvm) have under
etc/openvpn
2 servers?
One like server1.conf with tun0 and other server2.conf with tun1.

Than when I want to add users, when I
source vars
which server will openvpn get?

Do I need to pay attention to any thing that I'm missing?

  • Yes, you can run multiple instances. You will need two different internal subnets.

    Certificates will be valid for both instances except if you specify/create two different CAs.

  • For the second instance You also need to either a non-standard port on the same IP, an extra IP, or to run one tcp instance and one udp instance on the same IP and port...

  • I was thinking only to change only tun0 to tun1 and port from 1194 to 1195...

  • That will do it, I've run OpenVPN on a lot of different ports and very rarely found myself somewhere that I could use 1194 but not 1195.

    If you're not using the server as a web server too, a nice trick is to set up a 3rd (or 4th..) openvpn instance on TCP port 443 - if the standard ports are blocked, this often gets you out of a jam.

    You don't need to run multiple instances of openvpn if you just want openvpn to listen to multiple ports. You only need multiple instances for different protocols i.e. UDP and TCP. If all you need is UDP then one openvpn instance will suffice. Just redirect traffic from multiple ports to that instance:

    You can also use port 587 which is used for SSL traffic to email servers. This way you can still run a web server on 443
