    Hi All,

    I am wondering if it is possible for a single user to have multiple
    VPN connections (from different locations) to the SBS 2003 DC?

    I wuld like to set up a single VPN user to access our network, and
    then have the users enter their personal username / password to get
    into the TS or their own machine via RDP.

    This would mean that all users would have to enter two usernames /
    passwords to get right in (better security) and I can then change that
    one VPN user's password monthly to maximise our perimiter security.



    The views expressed are my own, and not those of my employer or anyone
    else associated with me.

    My current valid email address is:

    This is valid as is. It is not munged, or altered at all.

    It will be valid for AT LEAST one month from the date of this post.

    If you are trying to contact me after that time,
    it MAY still be valid, but may also have been
    deactivated due to spam. If so, and you want
    to contact me by email, try searching for a
    more recent post by me to find my current
    email address.

    The following is a (probably!) totally unique
    and meaningless string of characters that you
    can use to find posts by me in a search engine:

  2. having multiple users who are aware of the VPN credentials lowers your
    overall security model in comparison to each user having their own.

    But yes, the same credentials can establish multitudinous conections.
