Cisco VPN setup and site2site VPN is NOT simple.  It would be if people stuck to routers.  But people have this insane desire to punish themselves with using windows boxes as VPN server, instead of leaving it to routers that are dedicated to the function.  Routers are so easy to setup and work so well, you have to wonder why peopl are so masochistic as to inflict endless punishement on themselves by using windows servers to VPN when they cant even do it properly.

If you go for job, remember, ILLOGIC prevails in VPN.  Most people choose the WORST VPN servers, and they totally ignore the simplest.  Remember that CISCO makes Linksys too, and these are so simple and so reliable, none of the setup issues of CIsco, they work out of the box with 5 mins configuration.

There is everything from the simplest Linksys, to the highly configurable Cisco, to the solution that is a total pain in the neck -- MS servers.  In your job, you will have to contend with them all!!!  Good luck.
