Linux VPN server - Red Hat 7.1

Hi,

I have a linux box running Red Hat 7.1 that sits behind a NAT router. I would like to configure the box to run as VPN server to allow mostly Windows XP and 2000 clients to VPN to the network.

Can someone suggest some software that could accomplish this task? I am looking for something that is the least hassle to set up.

Thanks,
Chris.

an easy way that is also very firewall friendly:

http://www.openvpn.net

this uses only udp/1194 port. just forward the port from outside to your linux box. install openvpn in your linux box using the howto. there are samples for the server.conf and also there is a windows client pretty simple to use.

for me, this is the best open source choice
