[Openvpn-users] Whole VPN-Net reconnects after a new client has joint the VPN.

Dear all,

i provide a small network with one VPN-Server and 10 VPN-Clients
(bridged => TAP).
All is working, but i have recognized the following:
In case of a new VPN-Client joins the net - connects to the VPN-Server -
it seems that all other Clients (the whole) network
will be kicked out to built up a new VPN-connection. This leads to short
breakes during the client connection and could make some trouble with
stateful firewalls.
What i want to know is: is this behavior OK or will it occur due to a
wrong configuration (client or server or both)?
If this is normal, then it would be nice to know for what it is
necessary (Routing, Security ???).

Thanks a lot
