I am in business with a couple of friends of mine, and to that end we are sharing an office with a single high-speed DSL connection. We are using FreeBSD (4.8-RELEASE, soon to be upgraded to -STABLE) as our gateway for the ineternal network, as well as serving e-mail, Web, etc.
Some of us like to work at home sometmes, and in fact there are even days when NO ONE is in the office and we're all working from our various homes. To that end, we would like to be able to set up a VPN, so that those people who are working from home can access the office network directly. Now here's the problem: all of us are using different OS's. I use FreeBSD on my desktop, but sometimes I like to work on the couch, in which case I use my Titanium PowerBook running Mac OS X (which is of course based on FreeBSD). My boss uses OS X on his iBook, and my other friend uses a Linux box. Now, with my (admittedly virtually nonexistant) knowledge of VPN, I know that Linux boxen tend to use FreeSWAN. FreeBSD, on the other hand, seems to use something called RACOON. And lord knows what OS X uses (although, since it's FreeBSD based, maybe RACOON can be compiled/adapted to use on it too?) (although I just did a Google search, and according to this O'Reilly Network article, it seesm that OS X has its own built-in PPTP implementation: http://www.macdevcenter.com/pub/a/mac/2002/12/20/vpn.html) Can anyone more knowledgable than I help me figure out how to get this multi-platform VPN monster going? Help! I need some backup!! Thanks, Donald [EMAIL PROTECTED] -- Donald Burr of Borg <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> | FreeBSD: The Power to Serve!
