openvpn question: one client computer with multiple server installations


Hi guys,

I've just installed openvpn onto a second server completely unrelated to the first server.

Since I now have two sets of keys, how do I manage my client so that I can easily select which server to connect with the respective set of keys?

What happens when I install 4 or 5 more openvpn's in additional locations?


Thanks!

Multiple instances?

In the client.conf you can mention the name of the server to which you want them to connect along with the port number.

Thanks! I got it figured out. I can put the .ovpn files and respective keys into separate directories and then select which server to use.
