VPN ???

Hi Experts,

This is the scenario;

Two offices are located in a two different country. Both of offices having leased lines. My requirement is to connect these two offices via IPsec VPN, using two windows 2003 servers. Any way, the point is  I need to connect these tow office in a secure way.
And I’m planning to have to LINUX iptables firewalls for both of places. Can we initiate this VPN connection only using LINUX iptables?

Can you give me the best possible scenarios?

Have you done the usual - check disk space, run chkdsk, dfrag, check for virus?

Sorry wrong question
VPN's are great for connecting offices.   Linux does a fantastic job of this.  If you are willing to put in a linux edgepoint at both ends, have a look at www.ipcop.org.   It's a graphical interface and it's really easy to use.

RRAS is what my consulting business uses.  I like this option because it's already built into server 2003.  The config was one of the easiest I've ever done.  KB 323415 should get you started.  Good luck.

From this method can we connect VPN clients from home ??
Yes, you can even make a setup disk or zip file they can run to automatically configure the connection.
