If you have backup of configuration file, you can use same DDNS name.

> How to create backup?

Backup file is created automatically in VPN server exe folder.

> Can I use VPN Server Manager for Windows?

You can save backup to file from 'Edit Config'.

> How to restore it then?

At first, please get current configuration.
After that, please overwrite DDNS key from backup file.

Then, please restore it by 'ConfigSet' command of vpncmd.

If you want to use GUI, please restore it from 'Import File and Apply' of 'Edit Config'.
