Linux VPN Connections Limit


I have heard that using poptop , the number of connections "ppp0 - pppx" are limited to 100 cuz of linux kernel limit. Is this true?

According to the poptop questions and answers it is 100 but it is not a kernel limitation. It appears you can tweak the code to easily get 2048 connections.
