VPN tunneling

Hi,

I need some advice and preferably a good howto to do the following:

I have one central SuSE 10 machine which is behind a firewall but has one to one NAT static IP assigned to it. I would like to have several SuSE machines VPN to this one from other locations. A sort of call home if you want. These will be behind different firewalls depending on the location.

The tunnel must only be between the central machine and the ones offsite not the entire networks.

What do you recommend for this type of structure?

and do you have any good howtos for this?

Thanks

I recommend ipsec based solutions as they are widely implemented. In various types of wardware that can interoperate. CAN is operative here, not all implementations in ADSL modems etc. are equaly well done, if even the firmware is kept up to date.

You don't tell what the firewall is that you use up central, but in this case it might well be done from the susebox as well (because of the 1:1 nat).

Openswan (formerly named super-freeswan) carried on with freeswan development after the freeswan team quit because they reached their goal (opportunistic VPN capabilities). Ie read: being able to build on demand tunnels with a PKI as base.
