Ubuntu 8.10 as vpn-server using adito

Posted on 2008-11-19
Last Modified: 2013-12-15
I have a server with two NICS: one is connected to the dmz and the other is connected to the internal LAN.
Now I want to use the adito software (open-source version of SSLExplorer) to create a vpn-server.
The server runs Ubuntu version 8.10 OS, and I wonder how I should set it up to achieve my goal.
The dmz and the internal LAN are already protected by a firewall system.
My final aim is that users will be able to connect to the NIC on the dmz, authenticate, and then get access to the internal LAN.
Q1: Do I have to install some form of firewall to maintain security, or could this be taken care of by the adito software ?
Q2: Which packages do I have to install on the Ubuntu box?
Q3: Any other things I should be aware of?

    Auito itself has some access controls like restrictions, access rights, etc.. as you already have firewall system hope, this is enough .

    installing and running the adito server  (nice blog scroll down to setps)

    OK, ssvl.
    I'll have to do some digging into the documentation, and then do some testing as well.
    I have hoped to save time by requesting information from this forum, but it seems to me that I'll have to do most of the job myself.

    Anyway: I'll give you full credit for this.
