I am trying to get VPNs working for my PC support customer - I originally
thought I would use the built-in IPSEC/L2TP support in Win2K/XP. But I
am reluctantly coming to the conclusion that it is just too fragile for a
production environment. It's more in the category of "amazed that it
works at all" rather than "set it up and forget it".
Meanwhile, an openswan-openswan connection just hums along for weeks'n
weeks without crashing.
So I would really like to use some sort of VPN endpoint hardware.
Unfortunately, I cannot afford the VPN-1 edge boxes. I am thinking
about getting a couple of Linksys WRT54G routers, which are dirt cheap
Linux - the older versions, anyway. Anybody tried out something like this?
