How do I set up a VPN connection that requires an RSA or similar Token

I have a request to set up a secure VPN using Token access ( RSA SecureID Token or www.cryptocard.com Token.

I would prefer the latter and even have a CryptoServer -6 package with 5 Tokens.

I am worried about being dependent on windows AD for security. I would much rather use a RADIUS server ( OPenRadius/ Free Radius ) on Linux.
Any suggestions on best practices, or similar experience would be appreciated.
I can use details on RADIUS packages that would be good for less than 10 users, as well as how to integrate.

Thanks !

You can use one of the CISCO ASA 5500 series device as the VPN end point and it in turn can authenticate against any number of authentication methods including AD, RADIUS, Token and so forth.

Entry level units cost around 5000

Looks like I will be using a Netscreen 5 GT for about $500 to do this.

Thanks for all the suggestions.
