Description

Feature from:
https://redmine.pfsense.org/issues/12267

Update:
https://docs.netgate.com/pfsense/en/latest/vpn/performance.html#duplicate-connections
https://docs.netgate.com/pfsense/en/latest/vpn/openvpn/index.html

The behavior here is to reject new connections from the same user after the specified number has been reached. Ping settings are important here because a user can get into a situation where they've maxed the sessions and one session is ungracefully disconnected, in which case the ping settings will determine how long before a new session slot is made available.
