I have tried beta2, I configured the vpn server with only one port to 
service connection requests from multiple vpn clients. It works fine, 
but I never tried the number of users that scale up to 100 clients. I 
heard that OpenVPN has limited only 50 connections.
Does anyone know what is the hardware requirement to provide ssl-vpn 
connections for 50 or 100 clients logon simultanously?
Does OpenVPN (beta2) use multi-threads or typical process forking for 
the service of vpn client connection?
The command ps -auxww | grep vpn only shown there is only one openvpn 
process running eventhought there are multi-clients estalbished connection.
