I am working on a project where I need to create a VPN over the internet. Problem is that I need the vpn to bridge both ends to the local networks, similar to how wireless WDS creates a layer 2 bridge.
A DHCP server will be at one end and needs to issue ip's to computers at the other end and we cannot have a vpn client on every pc which was my other idea.
I was thinking of windows xp's built in vpn because the server end can bridge to the local network but I dont know about the client end.
To make this more interesting, I am hoping that through the 10mb connection, the vpn could handle 6mb.
I am also open to a reasonably priced hardware based bridge and can easily find vpn servers built into various models of routers, but i cannot seem to find any routers with vpn clients built in.
