    Assuming outgoing, 1 per client. If you run say a cisco client to
    destination A and a nortel 1 to destination B, then in networlk
    connections you add as many other VPN connections you need or other
    clients.

    Practical issues like performance may have an effect and trying to
    remember all the different connections you have open.
    Lots, as with most Win things, perhaps many as you need until resources
    as run out.

    There are microsoft specific server newsgroups you could ask in.

    Try www.google.com , there are as usual bound to be lots of info.

    of each type is supported in the Web edition. A single connection in the
