OpenVPN Limit on the number of connections

I have a bunch of the Cisco RV325 router installed with the latest firmware. In the wake of the corona virus outbreak, all my users need to work from home. I have OpenVPN up and running, but now I am finding that it limits the number of concurrent users to 3 or 5. I need 10 or 15. How can I make this happen? I really do not want to use port forwarding as hackers will eat it alive. Please if anyone at Cisco has an answer, I would appreciate it.

Re: OpenVPN Limit on the number of connections

Thank you for the reply, but I have no idea what you answer means? Can you clarify? The Doc does not discuss OpenVPN and how many concurrent connections I can have. 

 

Thank you for you time in getting back to me.

Re: OpenVPN Limit on the number of connections

OpenVPN which is a very secure method that receives security updates in a regular basis but only allows up to 5 simultaneous users. Please follow below given link for the same -> refer page 100 (search for open VPN).

As per requirement you can use IPSEC VPN. The IPSec VPN option allows up to 25 simultaneous users but it requires you to use a 3rd party VPN client (i.e., Shrew Soft)for it to work, such VPN clients are 3rd party and not supported by Cisco. Also attaching file with steps to configure VPN setup using shrew soft VPN client.
