I appreciate your input but have already tried this.  Besides the weak
encryption, it seems to not work with my WinXP client.  This looks like
a deal breaker for me, I like m0n0wall and think the concept is great
but it just isn't going to work for me.

 

Thanks anyway,

Eileen

Eleen,

PPTP is probably the best way for you to go with your situation.  There
is a document on the m0n0wall site that goes through the setup of the
server and the workstation so it works.  E.g. so you can see your LAN
and the Internet and DMZ from the PPTP client.

The doc can be found:  http://m0n0.ch/wall/guides/pptpvpn.pdf

If this doesn't work for you, or you find mistakes in the directions
please let me know so I can update them.

I am trying to set up a connection to my internal lan that can be
accessed to download files, get email, etc.
 
The LAN is configured with a static ip address and hosts an exchange
email server and web server.  It has a cable modem -> m0n0wall -> 10/100
switched network.  The internal hosts are configured with NAT rules to
the appropriate hosts. Internal lan is 192.168.123.0/24
 
I do field service and hook up to the internet from client sites, none
of which use the same subnets.  I have a SafeNet softremote client on my
pc because some of my clients are set up with NetScreen boxes that I set
up with vpn access.  I would like to do the same thing with my lan so I
can access my servers remotely.
 
Can this be set up, or does the m0n0wall only do IPSEC from router to
router?
 
Eileen

Try providing some information about your network layout, which networks
 
are where, and how you're trying to connect to the LAN from the XP
client.
