I apologise for the lack of knowledge related to Openswan - I started and
installed today. I would like to use a secure connection between a laptop
(which seems to be called "Road Warrior" here) and a server (with no network
behind it; just a server to administer). The reason I started to look for a
more complex solution is that the laptop has no static public IP. And on top
of that it can connect from various places - with one or two machines before
the public internet.
My questions are (and thanks to anybody for any advice):
Is Openswan the right solution to use for such a situation?
If not, what other solutions could you recommend? (I looked at racoon -
Is it possible to configure Openswan in such a way that is connects my two
machines regardless of whether there is a router+modem or whatever gateway
configuration between it and the server (which has a public IP) - or not?
