We usually use OpenVPN rather than IPSec as it's generally easier to set up, works from roaming systems behind NAT firewalls, and there are easy-to-use clients for Windows, OS X, Linux, and various other flavors of Unix. OpenVPN uses user-space SSL, and does not require any kernel support. Bill -- INTERNET: b...@celestial.com Bill Campbell; Celestial Software LLC URL: http://www.celestial.com/ PO Box 820; 6641 E.
