Giving you the program name ought to be enove of a hint. http://www.google.com/search?q=openvpn The openvpn site has a very nice howto. I can tell you the setup I have. I don't authenticate against UNIX or Samba passwords. I don't see what good it will do to require such autentication. It might even post a security risk. It might be posible. I do use certificates (standard) so I can cut off machines. Users need to authenticate when the connect to the services of a machine. I have a firewall on each computer. I have a VPN tunnel beteen sites and a road warrior setup for laptops. And I have a setup that allows me to take a server down without disrupting traffic flow beteen sites. -- Alex Please copy the original recipients, otherwise I may not read your reply.
