Re: IPSec questions...


If you don't want to play with FreeS/WAN or CIPE or such, you could just
rig an ssh connection and run PPP through it. This way you don't have to
worry about patching kernels etc. (or at most, just compile PPP support
in, as modules if you care about your uptime ;)


My friend's machine on the internet is also on my intranet,
and it works great. Whatever I feed this IP, goes thru the ssh tunnel,
including packets that ssh will not forward normally (udp packets etc)

My humble recommendation.
