I need to setup a 24/7 vpn connection between 6 users in LA and my main office (30m users). I am looking at appliances like watchguard firebox x, checkpoint safe@office, cisco pix, nortel connectivity and sonicwall tz170. I like the idea of vpn/firewall in one appliance. I am sick of seeing the old pc running a linux ip cop distro that has been acting strange lately. I am looking for ideas on what is the best way to go to secure both locations and offer vpn connectivity and not give my boss a heart attack when he see how much it costs.
