that's what i was afraid of. ipsec would be great, if it was possible to
have it
setup itself against the server each time you login (maybe windows logon)
but theres
always a client software needed, and in most cases, you're not able to
access other
networks smoothly if connected.

maybe you're right on that, but currently, we have to test the FreeBSD
thing, and
set it up (because the hw is already here...)
