Can IPsec be setup between Solaris and Windows 2000 server?
Posted on 2003-11-11
I need to setup a secure tunnel between some Solaris servers (running Tivoli) and backend Windows 2000 servers (running Domino). I plan to do this using IPsec for authentication and possibly encryption. I have setup IPsec between Windows 2000 servers no problem. However as I am not as clued up on the Solaris admin side.
I have researched this and what I've read seems to suggest that it 'should' be possible to set this up using Solaris 9 rather than 8 with Windows 2000, as Solaris 8 did not support IKE which Windows requires to negotiate keys (I know pre-shared keys could be used but obviously I don't want to go down that road unless its a last resort).
So my question has two parts:
A) Is it possble to get Solaris 9 (using the "in.iked" daemon for IKE) talking to Windows 2000 server using IPsec or am I waisting my time?
B) Can this be done using Solaris 8?
