Question pptpd (poptop) remoteip range


Hi;
Currently I have the following configuration on pptpd.conf which allows 250 connections :

localip 192.168.10.1
remoteip 192.168.10.2-254
connections 250

I would like to increase the connections to 500 , so I need more remoteip , what is the correct format for defining more remoteip ?
something like : 192.168.10.2-11.254 ? is this correct ?

Regards

seems like a though (sic) question for you?

This involves the configuration of the subnet. You are currently using 8 bits for the host address and 24 bits for the network address. You can use 9 bits for the host address and 23 bits for the network address. That will allow you 255 times 2 minus 2 addresses for the hosts. (255 x 2 -2 = 508).

The notation might be easier if you switch to using 16 bits for the network addresses and 16 bits for the host addresses. Then you won't need a subnet calculator to figure out the settings.
