Small Business Vpn


Recommended Posts

Hey guys this is one of my first posts and I'm looking for some help setting up a VPN for a small business. Right now I have them running of a Ubuntu server running a OpenVPN network, I am looking into setting up most possibly a IPSec VPN. I am trying to keep all the software Open Source (free) to minimize the economic footprint of it in the company. If you guys would recommend something other then IPSec could it possibly be something that would work on Blackberrys and/or iPhones.

Thank you in advance.

I'd still use OpenVPN its great, easy to implement and most of all easy to use.

However, if you still want to use IPSEC, there is a linux distro called openSwan

I a company I used to work for used the Openvpn access server for their clients I have no idea if it'll work with bb but it has a native mac client so maybe it'll also work with iPhone.

After trying a couple of different options, including the Cisco RV082 which was expensive and needed to be rebooted often. I had a lot of luck using pfsense (http://www.pfsense.org/) It was super easy to configure and for the client machines shrewsoft (http://www.shrew.net/) is an great option, especially because it allows you to export and import the configs. It was fairly easy to setup an IPSec vpn to get I to connect and haven't had a single problem since.
