Ideas for VPN, moved from Sys Admin Tasks page (see also Request Tracker)

  • Improve the flaky VPN connecting the lab network with the colo center cluster network
    • the current VPN is hacked together; there are better, more stable alternatives, such as:
      • OpenVPN - crashed on x86_64 last time I tried, maybe fixed now?
      • Poptop - dependent on Microsoft protocols
    • move lab side of the VPN tunnel from a box behind the gateway to the gateway itself (less routing hops that way, more intuitive routing config for lab machines)
      • this requires setting up a Linux or BSD box at the lab to serve as the gateway
