We're opening a branch office in the Philippines. In the past with remote VPN users we've had problems making IPSEC work across the pacific. It seems like port 500 is being blocked by some countries (Such as Japan). In other cases, the tunnel would negotiate but then no traffic would go across. Anyone know what the story is with IPSEC in the Philippines?
Second, assuming we can't get IPSEC running across the ocean, can anyone recommend have any low cost gateway type VPN systems that work on other less blockable standards such as SSL? I can google it too so points go to those with actual experience.
