I am going to venture into the field of the security gurus so help me God! It looks like I am gonna get stuck in wet cement, I can feel it;)
I have two sites, siteA and siteB. Each site has a horde of Windows PCs behind a FreeBSD box, which acts as a firewall/router/proxy/everything:) Each site has got a dedicated connection to an ISP. At the moment it's the same ISP, if that matters, but my thinking is that it can be any ISP. I have a challenge of establishing a WAN between the two sites. They are geographically apart. In this scenario, siteA has several applications running on several windows servers which are behind the FreeBSD box. The challenge is to allow siteB to access these applications securely via the WAN setup. VPN comes straight to mind, but this is a new area to me. The boxes are both FreeBSD 5.5-STABLE. I am looking for pointers/clues on how to do the setup in a clean way, while adhering to K.I.S.S as closely as possible. If extra hardware (other than the FreeBSD boxes) is required so that the WAN is efficient, I'd be happy to know. I am very optimistic on pulling this one off, since I belong to a community full of security experts (FreeBSD users).
