Multiple VPN servers -> CPU load balancing

Post by Stephan84 » Thu Mar 26, 2020 9:08 pm

Hello everyone,

I have two questions about OpenVPN. Since Openvpn can only use one CPU, I read that if you have installed several VPN servers on one computer, the load is distributed among the available processors.
Is that correct?

If I have installed several VPN servers on one computer, do I need a separate CA for each server or can I use one CA for all servers?

Many thanks for your help.

Best wishes
Stepahn

1. Yes.
2. Depends on your goal.

I want to operate each tunnel separately and have access to all others with an admin tunnel.
