[Openvpn-users] selective client-to-client

Hi everyone,

I'm running openvpn-2.0.6 server (routed configuration) on FreeBSD and 
most clients are the same. I use OpenNMS to monitor a bunch of nodes via 
the VPN and my server is configured with a client-to-client option, its 
what makes the monitoring possible.

Problem is that only the monitoring server needs to see all other nodes 
on the VPN, all other clients should not be able to see each other. This 
can be achieved with client-to-client option and then firewalling each 
client individually on the server, but that is quite a lot of work.

Is there any way I can selectively configure what nodes can see what 
using OpenVPN? How are others dealing with this problem?

All comments equally welcome.
