[Openvpn-users] Possible to put Clients on a Class B - i.e. allow more than 254 client connects.

Folks,

I'm sure this is answered somewhere but archive searches never seemed to
quite address my question.

I'm wondering if and how it is possible to serve client connecting in
tun mode with addresses off of a Class B private network. I realize that
2.0.x with Windows clients defaulted to win30 mode resulting in the
.252  subnets.

I would like to have a configuration where I'm not limited to a single
class C.

Thus far I've tried both 2.0.x Debian Sarge (2.0.9?) and 2.1rc_4, also
have tried the topology subnet directives in 2.1 with a 2.1rc_4 client.
However if I put "server 10.21.1.0 255.255.255.0" in the server config
file it will not even start.

I have the following configuration criteria:

* Linux Server
* Tun Mode
* Mostly Windows Clients
* 2.1_rc4 on both ends.

If it's not that simply any guidance about how to do a "large"
deployment would be appreciated.

Cheers folks.

C
