 A FreeBSD Firewall With An IPSec Uplink

BSD Today talks about building a FreeBSD firewall with an IPSec uplink.

"One way to add a layer of security to these otherwise less than secure networks is to set up an encrypted Virtual Private Network (VPN) tunnel using IPSec between the end user and the service provider. The FreeBSD operating system provides this capability as well as the capability to access the wireless network using a standard 802.11b wireless Network Interface Card (NIC). FreeBSD also provides firewall and Network Address Translation (NAT) capabilities to protect systems behind the firewall."
