I currently have OpenVPN installed on Ubuntu which works great. I have an upcoming project, where I have to provide remote access to thousands of users. I am considering OpenVPN for this, because it's worked great for me in the past. What concerns me is can I load balance let's say three OpenVPN servers to share the load? I having been searching online, but I haven't really found to much information regarding this. I found one article, but it didn't really seem like it was true load balancing. When I say true load balancing, I mean I want all three OPenVPN servers to share the load. I don't what one server handling 500 connections and the other two servers only having 10 or 20 connections. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I would leave the three openvpn servers on their links, and advise users to switch to the gateway the seem to see faster.

They will naturaly balance the usage.

I have several points of access. instead of load-balancing them, I distributed different configuration scritps naming the with the name of the access point. users connect tipically to one, but in case of problems can switch to other access point just by selecting on the gui
