There's no support for mesh networking presently, so you're pretty much
stuck with having everything go through a designated server. There's been
plenty of discussion on the subject though; feel free to read the archives.

Would I be able to get away with running an openvpn server on each of
the 30 servers, so they are all listening, as well as run a second
process of openvpn in client mode on each server then add routes so that
traffic destined for any of the 30 nodes would go through the openvpn

I know it would be a bit of a kludge solution but *can* it work...

It might work, though....

Have you calculated the total number of VPN's you will have to support. It might be more convenient and easier to maintain to use a hub and spoke topology. Is there a reason why you want to mesh all those nodes?
