I have three Windows 7 laptops I was to use to set up a network for my business. I was planning to make one the server and have other two connect remotely through the VPN service. I understand that Windows 7 only allows one VPN connection at a time, so I'll have to get a different OS.

I was looking at Windows Small Business Server 2011, but I don't want to take the plunge until I know that it can support multiple incoming VPN connections. Does anyone have any ideas?

My company use SBS 2011 with VPN fine - I don't think there's a specifically enforced limit on the number of VPN users (though of course you'll need enough CAL licenses to cover you).

Oh, to clarify, we have at least 15 VPN users, and it works fine. –  Nick Shaw Jun 15 '12 at 14:04

I think you can Buy a VPN connection and set it up on your Router (you might have to buy the router, if you don’t have one) and connect all devices and computers through that router.

Other wise you will have to go with another VPN Software that supports simultaneous connections on a single account. However, there are very few VPN Services that support that. I will now list all the VPN Services that can help you connect your simultaneous devices through one VPN account and through single VPN account.

Hidemyass VPN - 2 Multiple Connections (Single Connection)

Cienen - 7 Multiple Connections (Single Connection)

GoTrusted - 5 Users Pack (5 Separate Connections)

FBVPN - 2 Multiple Connections (Single Connection)

ibVPN - 5 Multiple Connections (5 Separate Connections)

Well not much sure about the SBS 2011 with multiple connection but i have been using Windows Server 2008 R2 which allows me to work with multiple connections at the same time and the speed and working capacity is with according to my need. I am also searching around to find something related to SBS 2011 with vpn but couldn't get much information about the multiple connectivity. I have been using Purevpn server from last couple of months for months to engage my work area with vpn and the experience is quiet good to me. They offer this VPN Server facility via WS 2008 R8. I think you better need to contact with Microsoft team they can guide you better about SBS 2011 with multiple connections. I hope that my input may result is some good signs for you.Thank you:)
