Hi,

We have a central database server with many telnet clients both in the 
store and at two other locations in nearby towns that also have telnet 
clients telnetting into our single database server.

We are currently using openswan vpn on redhat 7.3.
I would like to move to m0n0wall and my question is can m0n0wall do it?
Since I don't want to disrupt sales, it would make it a lot easier if I 
had the reassurance of this group on this question.

So to try and make it clear, we have a single server at one location. 
The server location has a gateway/firewall with a static IP address and 
our remote locations have static IP addresses as well.

Will our telnet sessions work using the m0n0wall ipsec vpn solution?
I ask because there is information in the m0n0wall handbook stating that 
this version of freebsd doesn't support NAT traversal, but the m0n0wall 
box will have an internet IP on the WAN and the local IP on the LAN such as:

192.168.1.15 --- 192.168.1.1 --- m0n0 --- 1.2.3.4 --- (internet) --- 
5.6.7.8 --- m0n0 --- 192.168.2.1 --- 192.168.2.20

Sorry about the poor graphics.
So can something on the remote lan of 192.168.2.0 like 192.168.2.20 
telnet to 192.168.1.15 with a m0n0wall box?

I thank you,
Joe Commisso
