Multiple sessions with VIA VPN

Has anyone tried to start multiple VPN sessions with VIA? Looks like the VIA client can only handle one connection at a time and if I try to start a new one to another controller, it ask to terminate the current session (screenshot attached).

I currently use Viscosity with OpenVPN and I can have multiple sessions at a time with no issues.

Re: Multiple sessions with VIA VPN

I personally try not to have even two different VPN products running at the same time to avoid connectivity issues.  Is this a popular use case?

Re: Multiple sessions with VIA VPN

At least for me it is. I have a lab environment for testing and it's common for me to jump between the lab and production. They have entirely separate IP schemes to avoid overlapping (and confusion).

I'm finding out that with VIA I will need to be constantly disconnecting and connecting between the VPNs.

Even if I decided to do that as a good practice, it would be nice to have a fast way to jump between VPNs. On the VIA client that requires multiple clicks. With the Viscosity client, I have a dropdown list directly from the icon in the tool bar to quickly select the VPN I want to connect. It literally requires 2 clicks to jump between VPNs.
