    Smile vyatta as router? vytool as configuration manager?


    Dear Linux network enthusiasts,

    Company for which I work needs to build a bunch of office networks, connected by VPN.
    My mission is to configure routers and VPN tunnels.
    I'm not novice to network, but not a big expert in Linux,
    I used to configure CISCO and Juniper hardware,
    before my company decided to try OpenSource routers.

    I've chosen Debian-based Vyatta router distribution.
    Will use OpenVPN for VPN.
    For configuration and certificate management
    I've chosen vytool utility: vyatta4people.org/vytool
    Sorry for posting link...

    My question is:
    Do you think it is a good solution, I mean both Vyatta and Vytool?
    Maybe you can name other alternatives? What do you use on your router?
    What do you think is really good OpenSource router?


    I don't want to ask that questions on Vyatta forum, cause it may be offensive to Vyatta...

    Thanks!

    I'm not familiar with Vyatta tools, but I have worked some with OpenWRT and dd-wrt software for routers. So, why do you think that asking questions on the Vyatta forums may be offensive to them? I would think they would welcome some well-considered questions in order to convince you that they have a viable (for your purposes) solution.

    Thanks dude!
    I've followed HOWTO from Vyatta4People.Org and got my setup sucessfully,
    I was just unsure about Vyatta quality, now I'm sure its good!
