unused openvpn client_mgmt_port ?
but as far as I can tell this number is not used
and the management is using a Unix domain socket and not a TCP port.
(I noticed this while working on my book.
My list of bugs is at http://reedmedia.net/books/pfsense/bugs.html )

It was a part of the OpenVPN Client Export package that was used with the OpenVPNManager add-on. That add-on has been removed, since it was no longer necessary. Any references to it can be removed.

Indeed, in "the olden days" we had to run OpenVPN Manager on a Windows client so that unpriv users could use it to start/stop their OpenVPN connections. If users had multiple configs installed on their client Windows system (e.g. for links up to different offices), then each one had to have a unique port number that OpenVPN Manager would talk to in order to start/stop/control the particular client.
