(See, don't let anyone ever tell you that I don't admit it when I'm
Now, I've done some serious reading on VPNs in general and OpenVPN in
particular, and it seems that this is one really schweeeeet piece of
code. James Yonan has outdone himself with this project.
Anyway, I'm asking if the next beta release of m0n0wall will have the
current RC of OpenVPN 2.0 in it, because the current m0n0wall beta has
an older (probably current at the time) OpenVPM 2.0 beta11 in it. I'd
like to hope that m0n0wall won't make 1.2 final until OpenVPN 2.0 has
also gone final - it would only make sense (to me) considering this is a
core component now.
Anyway, I still see little need for us to use VPNs ourselves, but our
clients will from now on likely be using SSL VPNs based on m0n0wall and
OpenVPN instead of IPSEC from now on.
