    Hello everyone,

    I have searched for sometime on how to add or create additional OpenVPN Clients besides the two default clients on GUI(tun11 and tun12) but have failed to find a solution. I have several AC68U all connected via OpenVPN to each other, successfully routed specific VLANs to another VLANs on different AC68U, all thanks to Koitus few years back. I'm still extremely grateful to Koitus for his previous help.

    All this time I have been limited to running only two clients(tun11 and tun12) at a time on each AC68U but I realized that this limit can be broken by creating more instances of clients via non-GUI method. However, I am not a Linux nor an OpenVPN guru and again would like to seek help from the community.

    I believe I can create the Client Configuration file necessary for the third OpenVPN Client service, however, I'm not sure how to start the new client. I know it must be in the script or somewhere in the commands...

    I do have permanent USB flash drive connected to all AC68U to save logs, scripts, and config files.

    How do I go about starting a new OpenVPN client via script/command line? Again this would be on top of the two GUI clients that's already running, tun11 and tun12.

    So I guess I am asking how to add / start tun13?

    Thank you in advance for any insight anyone can provide.
