Wille,

Your best best is the New Zealand broadbnad mailing list at http://www.freebsddiary.cx/adsl/

Rest assured, you are not the only one that wants to do this. I'm in Wellington, on ADSL. This has been a hot topic lately and someone recently figured it out. Check the mailing list archives first.

All this seems strange that telecom does not in fact offer more help when it comes to fitting the clients needs! oh well i guess thats how the world is going!

I have heard through the grape vine that they are going to offer a VPN setup with adsl but it seems to be a ongoing saga and they say its not going to be ready till later this year! surprise surprise!

Unfortunately some of us would like to get the hook up now!

I wish someone would publish the results of there NTserver to server VPN PPTP thorugh the adsl on the net ....

nothing ever seems easy to find on the net these days!

so anyone who knows how to achieve this setup PLLLLLLEEASSSEEE get typing!!!!


cheeers

They are going to offer their own solution. Myself, I wouldn't trust that. I would rather use boxes that I know.

As for the ADSL set up, you're better off asking on that list than here.

I checked the above list and could only find info on NT solutions. Has anyone found a FreeBSD/ADSL to FreeBSD/ADSL VPN solution? Specifically I'm trying to add a VPN link between two TCP/IP networks using FreeBSD/IPFilter/(some VPN application) and Residential ADSL connections from a local ISP. The two networks have Win98 clients and a few WinNT4 servers. Both are using FreeBSD and IPFilter/IPNat for the Firewall between the private network and the Internet. I need to send data from one WinNT server on one network to another WinNT server on the other network through a secure connection.

The above list being the NZ broadband mailing list? If so, you'll find more than just NT solutions. Most of the solutions mentioned there are unix based solutions.

Doesn't FreeBSD 4 have IPSEC? You can tunnel through that and have vpn. Several solutions for vpns, like SKIP. Have a look though <a href ="http://www.freebsd.org/ports/security.html">http://www.freebsd.org/ports/security.html</a>.

Thanks Dan,

I'll look at the NZ Broadband list again. Is there a search feature for that list?

Both firewalls are running FBSD 3.4-STABLE and upgrading to 4 is probably not going to be an option at these busy sites. (maybe though. I'll ask.) I'll look again through the ports also.
