Client VPN authentication merhod

I’m using Meraki cloud authentication for VPN. I have a single account for VPN users. Because of the virus everyone is working from home and some complained about disconnecting from VPN. 

I called Meraki and they said only 5 users can login with the same VPN account. I created some temp accounts and this seem to have solved the issue. 

If I use Active Directory authentication for VPN so that each user logs in with their Windows account, that should also solve the problem right?

Kind of a big deal

That limit is set on the firewall as a global setting. I.E. it applies to all VPN users. I've been told they can decrease it but not sure if they can increase it.

 

I would recommend setting up RADIUS auth with Windows AD, yes. NPS is pretty simple.
