Interested in Setting up a VPN


Hello

I am interested in learning about how to setup a VPN.

So my question is does any body know of any paid or open source software and/or tutorials for setting up a VPM on Linux.

And just before you say it I am googling some solutions I am just keeping a wide variety of options =)

Thanks bunches

I do have 1 question about it. Windows and Linux systems should be able to connect to it correct?

can't see why not. As long as you have a server and a client it should work. I did real vnc to a linux box from a windows box. If you want a more robust network use samba also. That one is a tricky to use at first.

none yet. Just wanted to see who would try it.

what would be more funny is if someone aliased it to the space bar.

I don't get the humor of your last post. Did you do something with the information you received om OpenVPN.

I see in your signature that you are running your own Linux forum. What is the use of it?

I got bored at home and did rm -rf / just for humor and got those results. I was bugging murankar about his sig.

Other than that I am looking for a Good VPN Server that Linux and Windows can connect to. I have got openVPN up and working but is there a client that can use Windows VPN Protocol PPTP as well?
