    Is there any advantage to have multiple instances for OpenVPN clients, or is it a waste of resources?
    I realize one may want different servers for geographical considerations, but what about to the same server?
    For instance, a higher use client such as a television stream as opposed to a PC?
    thanks,

    It appears I've asked a question that is too difficult to answer, or one that is too rudimentary to acknowledge. I suspect it's the latter.
    If I've offended any one, I apologize.

    Connecting multiple times to the same server is pointless, and will actually create a conflict. Only connect one client.

    Thank you. I am sorry that you had to take out of your time to answer probably a stupid question, but I didn't know. I got to thinking it may be faster, but was wrong.
    thanks again,
