The net6 SSL VPN is a reasonable SSL VPN implementation.

Compared to IPSec VPN's, you're right that SSL VPN's have the advantage of not needing as much "touch."

On the other hand, SSL VPN's are application-aware and may not work with all applications you run over the network (as they're not actually Virtual Private Network's but rather Virtual Private Application Transports)

Another advantage of IPSec VPN's is that you can usually set them up so that they can't talk to anything except the IPSec tunnel, which means you don't have to worry that someone's machine gets hit by an Internet worm and they then spread it to the internal network.

I won't even go into why you don't wan to allow people to connect to your SSL VPN from untrusted machines in web cafe's and libraries....
