Hi all!

I was configuring OpenVpn and it's great, I set up a tunnel with my server
and my computer home and works ok, but my doubt is how to set multiple
vpn tunnels with this server, but I don't want to have a lot of tunel.conf
and running for example:

openvpn --config /etc/openvpn/tunnel0.conf
openvpn --config /etc/openvpn/tunnel1.conf
etc etc

or have a lot of "ifconfig" "ifconfig" in 
a .conf file
(I don't know if this possible).

I would like if posible to set up subnetworks like 
http://www.shorewall.net/OPENVPN.html, where they can communicate systems in 
the subnetwork to the network.
But My question and My Problem is , that I have a lot of subnetworsk that I 
want to communicate to an specific network, in this case although I use the 
set up that is explicated with the " Shorewall - OpenVPn Solution" i have to 
set up multiple tunnel configurations ( I mean a lot of tunel.conf) ?

Well, my english is not so good, so I made a graphic to explain this doubt

If someone now this solution, or another vpn daemon to do it, I'll be very 

and Thanks for all!
