Hey there

I have accepted the task of implenting a VPN Gateway primarily for mobile
Windows XP users.
I have played around with OpenSwan before in a net-to-net configuration.

I have searched info on the subject and have reached the following
Implemented on a Pentium III, 800 MHz, 256 MB RAM, with 2 NIC's
IPTables as the firewall.
IPSec instead of netkey. Should be the recomended solution for working with
Certificate based security

Now i could use some advice on a choosing a distro, that complements my
needs and makes it "easy" to implement, without a lot of trouble with
incompatiple versions of various packages.

What would you guys/gals recomend ?



Sometimes you have to suffer a little bit in your youth to motivate yourself
to succeed in later life.
Do you think if Bill Gates got laid in high school, do you think there'd be
a Microsoft?
Of course not.
You got to spend a long time in your own locker with your underwear shoved
up your ass before you start to think,
"You'll see. I'm going to take over the world of computers! I'll show them."
