I am trying to configure openvpn. As I read there is an option "--remote". It says the client the IP address of server to connect. Now my question is, is it possible to use "--remote" in server config so I can restrict client that wants to connect to server?

Thanks

No, the --remote option cannot be used to filter connections to the server. This should be implemented by a firewall on the server.
