Red face VPN Software


Can someone tell me of some good VPN software for Linux? Both client and server. I'm really looking for something that isn't really complicated but will get the job done. Thanks in advance!

Look into the FreeS/WAN project.

The FreeS/WAN project is deprecated and has been superceded by the OpenS/WAN

I personally prefer openvpn. OpenS/WAN runs in kernel space whereas openvpn is userspace. A security problem with OpenS/WAN results in a systemwide securityproblem.

Here are some openvpn links: openvpn-gui for windows xp
