Are the users connecting from the same site? If so, many routers will only allow one pass-through VPN connection at a time. This is at the client site.
Usually if you want multiple users to connect from one site, you establish a site-to-site VPN using VPN routers.

The initial trouble was that, but i realized that i have a bigger problem.  I got the trouble from different site... with different users that i had specified in my CHAP.secrets.
