    Is there a FAQ or How To thats still online on creating an IPSec VPN tunnel from a BEFVP41 to a Windows 2003 Server.

    Must be able to access SMB/Windows shares on the remote machine/network and they must be able to get back to a machine on our end of the tunnel to query a MySQL database server.

    Any pointers to active and online FAQ's & HOW To's would be great.

    Alot of what I've found is either no longer online or not the correct situation.

    Thanks in advance.

    I've "yet" to see this work personally, but two guys on the "entire friggin' internet" last year said they were able to make this work:

    http://www.tomsnetworking.com/2003/08/10/how_to_xp_ipsec/

    This is sum bullsh*t to me, but I'm saying that because I can't get it to work (yeah, yeah, I'm hating on Tom because he got it to work :) )

    Still, try your luck. Personally, I'd try SSH Sentinel before pulling my hair out with this method first. PM Tazuk because he's a big ssh sentinel user or take a look at flogator's website:

    You can download a free copy of ssh sentinel from here:

    Make it so, number one!! :)

    We currently have a tunnel from our BEFVP41 to a SonicWall 3060, this particular vendor has issues and we are relocating the services to another vendor.

    Part of current production uses a custom application which needs access to certain shares on the remote server via the VPN.

    New vendor needs to provide an adequate replacement for this VPN tunnel for the short term till this legacy system is replaced. I would wait to replace vendors but that is not an option I have right now with INSTABLITY of the current vendor to continue to operate.

    Use of the software listed will not work.

    Alright,

    so, what is an option you have? The software listed is the only "free" IPSEC client I personally know of. Outside of that, I'm not sure what you're asking due to your request seeming "vague."

    Are you looking for a better router, or just a better vendor?
