Re: [PLUG] VPN Options and Suggestions
I don't know how secure it is, but I've been playing with an OpenVPN
solution for IPCop lately and it seems to be a good solution. I
didn't want to deal with the complexity of a full fledged IPSec VPN
and I wanted to support really dynamic "roadwarrior" solutions.
OpenVPN seems to do that really well. Here's the HOWTO:

Good Afternoon Folks,
I'm in the process of setting up a VPN, or at least trying to

We'd like the server to be an FC4 machine, unless there's a compelling

something else. The clients will be Linux, MAC OSX and Win XP
The goal is to support some work from home situations.
I've peeked at three packages, OpenVPN, FreeSWAN, and OpenSWAN. It's
not obvious to me which is well supported. FreeSWAN seems to be
some development after a period of inactivity. OpenSWAN seems new and
of FreeSWAN defectors.
Any thoughts or suggestions?
