  • Openvpn does not use a ton of memory itself, somewhere around 70mb. Each user connected to this may then use 1-2mb more. Your results may vary but you should be able to get quite a few users on a 512MB droplet acting as a VPN server before you encounter problems.

  • thank you for answering my question sir, I made 40 for the current user, and I see my server is still stable. I do not know if all my users login at the same hour. maybe you can help me or at least give an idea to check the current vpn user. sorry, my english is bad :-)
