 Subject:  Dynamic WAN address VPN client, what should I use?
 Date:  Sun, 15 May 2005 13:07:51 +0800
Will m0n0wall be updated to support PPTP VPN over the internet as a client, 
or IPSEC with a dynamic WAN interface?

The only option at the moment apears to be OpenVPN, however the interface 
doesn't support client routing,
the system crashes with frequent connects (PC), it really needs a wrapper 
script to constantly restart as the
ping-restart configuration doesn't work 100%, and when the WAN address 
changes a SIGUSR1 needs to be sent in
order to reconnect with the new address.

What other solutions are available? Would it be better to find an appliance 
that supports VPN, maybe a Linksys with
Sveasoft firmware, WatchGuard Firebox (SOHO 6)? There aren't enough details 
to find whether Smoothwall / Sonicwall (TZ150) supports this
configuration.

There must be a lot of people who want these configurations?

1) LAN --> m0n0wall (static address) --> Internet --> (dynamic address) 
m0n0wall --> LAN
2) LAN --> m0n0wall (static address) --> Internet --> (dynamic address) 
DSL/Router --> Linux/BSD box --> LAN
3) LAN --> m0n0wall (static address) --> Internet --> (dynamic address) 
Linux/BSD box --> LAN
4) LAN --> m0n0wall (dynamic address) --> Internet --> (dynamic address) 
m0n0wall --> LAN
5) LAN --> m0n0wall (dynamic address) --> Internet --> (dynamic address) 
DSL/Router --> Linux/BSD box --> LAN
6) LAN --> m0n0wall (dynamic address) --> Internet --> (dynamic address) 
Linux/BSD box --> LAN
