How to test Freeswan on Internet


Hi all folks,

I am prepared to test Freeswan on LAN as well as on Internet as follows;

RH9. box
installing "freeswan-2.04-1fs.src.rpm"

and

Gentoo 14 box
installing freeswan-2.04.tar.gz <ftp://ftp.xs4all.nl/pub/crypto/frees...an-2.04.tar.gz>

via crossover cable connection for LAN test

RH9 box
Linux version 2.4.20-8

Gentoo 14 box
/usr/src/linux/Makefile
VERSION = 2
PATCHLEVEL = 4
SUBLEVEL = 20
EXTRAVERSION = -gentoo-r7

# epm -q genkernel
genkernel-1.8


My question is how to Freeswan on Internet.

I have no static IP address. My broadband provicder only provides dynamic IP which will remain unchanged if staying connected. I also have modem connection via the same ISP also dynamic IP which also remains unchanged if staying connected.

Can I make use of the IP address as abovementioned for testing Freeswan on Internet. If NO is there any solution.

Thanks in advance.

B.R.

im not 100% sure on FreeSwan but technically as long as the software isnt IP dependant (eg in the conf files) then you should be ok.. if so then I would suggest connected.. ifconfig yourself and then manually change all the conf files to suit.

I also know that their is a VPN server SOMEWHERE (i cant remember the location) that you can establish a connection with to make sure that you have everything setup correctly.

Hi,

Thanks for your advice.

Have you had any idea about the name of that website so that I can make a google search.
