Multiple static ip's per certificate

Post by marco208 » Sun Feb 12, 2017 7:52 pm


I'm looking to configure my openvpn server to allow multiple connections with the same certificate. I use net30 now and redirect the traffic from to public ip 1, to public ip 2, to public ip 3.

The thing is, i've set 4 certificates to use public ip 1 on the range but sometimes one of the certificates becomes active on 2 locations, such as phone and laptop. When they connect the second time the first one loses its connection because the new connection gets the fixed IP pushed.

Is this even possible?

TL;DR: Need solution to set address pool per certificate.
