Hi All!

Hopefully someone knows better than me!

First
I have mac mini with mountain lion server
two airport extreme
straght ip adress
and several devices as mbp, ipad, iphone, galaxy tablet, laptops with win7 and so on.


Second

I have to connect to server over vpn via airport extreme

I can do that when I turn on port mapping on airport extreme

But! Only one vpn connection (say it user1)

If i want connect to server another device (with different accoiunt on server say it user 2)
I can't do that!

Any ideas folks?

You shouldn't need separate TCP ports for each user.

Well first of all, what are you trying to do, exactly?

Provide access to folders files wiki server and etc. for more than one connection at the same time! At least 5-10 connections from different places (out of city, out of country) using different devices,(with ios, android, osx, linux, win)
Allow users to a copy, delete, write, files such as simpe text files with different extensions (txt. doc, odt. pdf xslx xml) fotos and so on.

VPN seems like a complete overkill for what could be accomplished with Dropbox, but what happens when you try to make additional connections? The initial connection works without a problem?

Yeah, I expected that event!
Dropbox provide not so many space as i need, and also apparently i can't control staff i can't see who works with files, when, which device is using and etc.
When i'm trying connect secondr device, then first device is loosing connection and second device is get connection!
