There may be a catch if your clients are mobiles or within another NAT-ed network. Most mobile
providers hide their users behind NAT-gateways, so the connecting "client IP" is the gateway
of the provider. Depending on the logic and number of routers/router IPs, it may be a problem
or not.
We had some problems with mobile providers at argentinia, where the oversimplified logic (port=
++lastport) of the gateway caused some trouble with a few hundreds of devices. That was some
years ago and they managed to solve it after some time.
So a small port range may be a good idea if you are planning to have a huge amout of connections.
