I am new to this list. I am planning to set up two wan/ipsec routers.
ADSL/ppp connections are available. I would like to know which of the
following is the best way
Setup1: 1 router and adsl/ppp interface to internet, Ethernet interface to
internal network, the machine has iptables firewall script and all machines
on the local network uses this machine as their default gateway. This
machine also has openswan installed, with ipsec.conf etc al
Setup2. 2 routers, the first a lan/internet router with adsl/ppp interface and
internal network connected to Ethernet interface. A second machine (on the
local network) serves as the wan/ipsec router. The iptables/firewall
script on the first router forward the relevant ports to this second machine.
advice would be appreciated.
