SonicWall Appliances are easy to install and configure. SonicWall
TechSupport can assist, 3 months free with the appliance.
I have one for my company and it ran about $900.00 with unlimited Network
licenses (TZ170), but with only one Global Client. I have it only for
remote users, myself to get into the network from home and while I or others
travel. Your configuration is different in that you will have a static IP
on each end. It may require two appliances, one at each end.
Unlimited Network Licenses or internal IP addresses is important, else you
will be limited to the first IP addresses it sees on the network. Others
won't be able to be seen when you are VPNing into the network.
I looked into VPNs a bit before I bought and SonicWall was the one
recommended the most.

Okay, I am submitting a request for suggestions.
First the setup:
Main office, 3MB DSL connection through Netopia DSL Modem.
The modem is connected to a Fedora Core 2 box running Shorewall Firewall.
The FC2 box is then connected to a switch.
Connected to the switch are about 8 laptops, 3 desktops and a SNAP NAS (File
Server with NTFS and NFS support).
All laptops are running Windows XP Home, with 2 desktops running Windows XP
Home and 1 desktop running FC3 (Workstation).
Remote office: 1.5BM DSL connection through Netopia DSL Modem (running as a
router with Shorewall firewall and static Ips, modem gets one as well as
each laptop for a total of 3 static IP's)
The laptops at the remote site are all Windows XP Home (currently 2 have
Now the question:
I want to remote office to be able to read/write to the SNAP File server. I
am guessing this is what VPN's are for. I am looking for an appliance vs.
setting up the FC2 box to do it, and would really like to replace the FC2
box with an all-in-one appliance is its possible.....
