I ran across your posting and while I personally do not have experience in the area you are inquiring about, it is an area of technology that I have been looking into myself. What I can do is make reference to some material that I have been looking at, at least that will give you a starting point to follow up on.
In terms of Linux based VPNs, I have been looking at a book to buy on the subject and this book has recieved a lot of good reviews http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/157...Fencoding=UTF8
For a Linux Firewall book, I have been looking at this book as a possible option to buy http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/067...Fencoding=UTF8
Regarding which distribution of Linux to use, well I am sure there are a lot of opinions on that one. I have a background in SCO Unix and IBM AIX, so I am pretty familiar with Unix in general. I just recently started getting into Linux, at least for the moment just here at home as my work environment is mostly Microsoft Windows related. I happened to be out at my local computer store recently and purchased the SuSE 10.0 version of Linux. Yes, I realize that you can download various distributions for no charge, but I thought as an intro into Linux a boxed distribution set might be best for me. So far I am enjoying SuSE a lot and will probably continue to work with it as I have the time.
Hope this helps you out.
