Re: Fedora, Public School budgets, Volunteerism??

Our Public School district needs VPN, but feels it can not afford it.

I am a retired CISCO Techie with Aurora (Ansel) and Fedora Core1 networked in my spare bedroom.

I have the idea that I could volunteer my LINUX skills to the District (a strict MicroSoft house) by building and maintaining for them a software freebie VPN system.

It would seem that with the present budget crunches our public school districts, LINUX, plus volunteerism make a natural combo.

Do any of you know others doing anything similar? If so, please put me in touch.

I expect to be doing that for a local school Union here this summer.
If IPsec VPN is what you are looking for I recommend using FC2. It is straight-forward to implement and is working for me in test environments. I wrote an OOo Impress document about it which I will be using at a Linux workshop next Monday. I'll revise that based on feedback from the session and share it with the list sometime next week.
