Hi Ange,

On the equipment I work on, group and account are different.  I have 
account(s) that are used to identify a peer to a gateway, and I also 
have another set of accounts are are used to authenticate a user sitting 
at the remote computer.

These second set of accounts I can place in group(s) that I can use for 
the VPN user authentication.  If I have multiple VPNs defined, I can use 
a different group for each one, and an account can go in multiple 
groups.  However, there is still a setting for each individual account 
that controls how many concurrent logins are allowed with that account.
