M0n0wall won't allow you to connect it to a VPN of another location. If
you want to link up your firewall to their firewall so that everyone in
the office can access their network (just like a single PC does with the
VPN), you need to setup IP-SEC link for that. M0n0wall has a built in
VPN server, but that's only to let people outside of your office connect
back to you, it won't go in reverse out to another office for VPN. I
had the same issue for two offices I wanted to link together and IP-SEC
has been a life saver. I had two m0n0walls at both locations and the
IP-SEC connection works like a charm between them. See if the other
office you want to connect to can do IP-SEC connections. Otherwise, I
don't know any other way you could do what you want in this setup.
