1. IPSec is an encryption protocol for VPN use. I'm sure Slackware supports it, but don't have first-hand experience.

2. I don't understand what you're asking. You want to run it on a LiveCD? Shouldn't be a problem, unless you want to reboot

3. Some hardware (routers etc) don't support IPSec pass-through. I've had to replace my home router with one that will support IPSec pass-through in order to conect to my office.

the ip on a box doesn't matter.

As acid_kewpie says, the IP address doesn't matter...

Just make sure there's no firewalls (on your PC or your router or ISP) blocking the ports, and that your hardware supports it (some routers with NAT won't do proper pass-thru)
