    Site to Site Secure VPN


    Hello

    Just wondering if there are any good programs to do site-ti-site secure VPN in Linux. There's ISA server for Windows ... how about Linux?

    I don't have any 'favorite' flavors of Linux so anything will work for me.

    Thanks in advance.

    Hello there:

    Do you want to set up a vpn from one network to another?

    I am just not clear on what you want, that is why I ask.
    Thanks.

    I would like to set up an encrypted VPN between 2 locations. So just from the one network to the other pretty much.

    L - R -------- R - L

    L = linux machine
    R = router

    To get your feet wet I would suggest using SSH. It comes standard on most distros.
    It is _not_ the best way to do it but since it's setup is so simple it will give you an idea what works for you.

    It's been a while but I once had this working from work to home.

    This is a more modern way to do it. Since SSH has grown over the years.

    My choice would be OpenVPN (Welcome to OpenVPN).

    Hello Miller:

    I agree with secondmouse. I would suggest you try using openvpn. Just let us know what you decide. Also, drop us a line or two telling us about what Linux distro you are using.
    Thanks.
