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

yes, as i know, openvpn has full support for CIDR. if u need u can use a 
/8 network for ur vpn clients.

as example:
server 10.0.0.0 255.0.0.0

but u should keep the "network" as small as u can to avoid overlapping 
with the local networks of ur clients...
