Virtual Privacy

I’ve been working on these VPN’s for so long my head is starting to spin. I’m making really good progress though. Well, good progress for never having used a SCO UNIX system before yesterday. Yes, that’s right, these CyberGuard systems use SCO. It sucks, but that’s what we’re using for now at any rate. But let this be a warning to you, if you’re in need of a VPN solution be warned that CyberGuard uses SCO. We might investigate another product called NetScreen (or something like that) but right now I’m under crunch to get the CyberGuard working.

I’m almost done too. I have the tunnels established, I can ping anything on the private class networks from the CG and I can ping the CG from anything on the private class networks. Now I just need to get it to forward packets to remote networks. Once I get it to do that, it should be easy to set it to be the default gateway for all traffic. Two small things, which don’t seem to be very small.

Enough break I guess….time to beat my brain some more.
