Such a scenario tends to go hand-in-hand with a variety of security issues due to a limit on the number of concurrent tunneling nodes any given client can handle at once. In other words, a VPN system may be dealing with a network overload in those circumstances and if it isn’t, chances out it’s just about to start.

Managing such complex networks of VPN-protected clients is a major reason why VPN concentrators are such a valued and necessary part of pretty much every organizational network past a certain size. This isn’t the place for a sysadmin orientation course, however, so let’s just wrap this up with a reminder that aggregation is a tricky business and should not be underestimated at any cost, especially if it’s multiple users’ privacy and security that is at stake.
