VPN Access to LAN


Hi All

I plan to allow VPN access to our lan using OpenSwan I have
read some how-to articles and think it's within my ability.

We have a FC7 box controlling the gateway with FTP configured, a single
Wan card and a single Lan card all functions OK.

The question.
Does OpenSwan require it's own Card to connect to the internet or will
it be OK to use the existing Wan card?

I ask this as we have only a single public IP address and do not plan
to purchase another.

I am reluctant to install OpenSwan before I am sure it will not give
the existing system trouble as it is used almost 24 hours a day.

Any comments or information on this subject would be gratefully
accepted.

Thanks in advance

Dave
