i need to create a vpn using ipsec tunnel so i can use a draytek router on side and the other i can have a linux box running a ipsec tunnel for vpn
i have tried to install freeswan but i cant find any documentation on how to do this :(
is there an easy way to set this up ???
or can anyone point me to somewher i can actually download it and get proper doumentation PLEASE HELP THIS IS URGENT!!!!
let me give a bitmoreexplanation of what i want to do.
this i the setup
Linux server---> Vigor Draytek 2600 router-->Internet<-----Router----Linux Box
ok both linux boxes are running redhat 7.3 (sorry actually one of them is running e-smith, but im gona remove that, so that wont matter)
so now the problem, the Vigor draytek router does do vpn via ipsec tunel etc.. and others and protocols,morecan be found at www.draytek.co.uk about the router.
so now the other side only has aplain router, so i need to either get the linux box to setup ipsec tunnel so i can vpn, connect via the draytek router, i thought i couldover come this by running this software on both linux boxes but the problem is although i have static ips on both routers take this ip and although the rest of the network connect to the server to go to the net , i was wondering could this work ???
hope the diagram helps
network ----> server(running VPN)--> router with static ip--->Internet<---router with static ip<-----server (running VPN)---Network
is this possible ??
please note the the server will have a dynamic ip of 192.168.0.2 where the router has an INTERNAL ip of 192.168.0.1 and this is the samefor both sides, but the external ip's are only given to the router for obvious reasons, so how can i overcome this,FREE software is a priority, and easy of installation or atleast staright forward documentaion, i would not consider my sefl a linux newbie, but i have tried to install, freeswan with no luck, and openVPN looks promising, but it would be nice to use it.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR HELP (in advance!!!)
I have been using FreesWan to create my VPN IPsec con, so if i can help in any way just msg me. Aha and the documetation is on FreesWan website. http://www.freeswan.org/doc.html
I have instaled it on SlackWare distro.
I can not get FreeSwan to compile on Slackware since 1.98. Now no matter what I do I get errors when the make oldgo tries to comiple the utilites in the testing dir.
I have tried fresh kernel source dir's, lastest freeswan builds. Removing the checks.
Still no luck :(
I have exactly the same scenario. So please if you have got some solution then tell me. PLZ ITS URGENT...
Thanks & Regards
