I can connect to my home machines from work using "runsocks ssh". Now it
seems to me that I ought to be able to build a full blown VPN tunnel using
this, right?

A little Googling suggest that one approach might be to use ppp over the
tunnel. Given that the 2 machines involved are both FreeBSD STABLE machines,
can anyone point me to some docs as to how to do this?

What I want to accomplish is full biderctional connectivity. That is I want to
be able to connect to my machines at home from work, and from home to the
machines at work.

Thanks for any help on this.
