    I have used concurrent connection for the same private key where the public
    key is on multiple platforms due to home directory being automounted.
    Between HP and Sun platforms.

         Is it possible for multiple clients to connect to a server with the
    same key.

    Should be okay. I've moved the private key for a user from one box to
    another without a problem. But I haven't tried concurrent connections using
    the same private key...

        How about changing the "user@host" in the public key to "*@*"?

    No idea on that one.
