Wireless Security & VPN


Hi all,

I am looking to secure my wireless network possibly with a VPN.

The vpn is to run between my linux router & clients only, are there any faq's out there that deal with this?

my setup is intended to be something like this:


[Internet] <- - -> [router]<--/Wireless VPN/-->[client(s)]

I am currently looking at using freeswan and going through the faq there it talks about setting up keys with DNS servers etc. being a small network without DNS is there a simpler method of doing this?
ie saving keys to hosts.conf or something?

TIA

smerk

You might look into something like PoPToP to create a PPTP VPN.
