style='font-size:10.0pt;mso-bidi-font-size:12.0pt;font-family:
Arial'>I am a junior technician in a Value Added Reseller environment. I have
been asked to come up with a VPN solution that we can sell and support using
Linux. I admit I am not much more than a Linux novice, and I&#8217;ve already 
tried a
few packages like VPS & Freeswan without success (errors during install).
Before I dive into this one too deeply I was hoping someone could clue me in 
as
to if this CIPE will do what I want it to do.<span style="mso-spacerun:
yes">? CIPE sounds like it might be a faster solution from what
I&#8217;ve read, due to using UDP instead of TCP, so I hope it is what 
I&#8217;m looking
for.

192.168.x.x network and the gateway would be masquerading all outbound traffic
(NAT &#8211; I&#8217;ve got this much working) The clients would be running 
various
Micro$oft OSes and it is important that they have a seamless (transparent)
connection to the other network. (able to access shares on the other network,
including NT shares) In other words the tunnel only happens between the
gateways&#8230; the clients don&#8217;t have to run special tunneling 
software and such.

compiling?)

better for you&#8221; type of answer. And any known problems with installing 
CIPE on
RH6.1 or the 2.2.16 kernel would be appreciated as well.
