VPN interoperability is one of the main reasons I went with IpCop. I needed a point to point connection to a Watchguard fw, which does not play nice with other VPNs. I think that I may have to give smoothwal a try. Since the snort version included with IpCop stopped receiving updates, I have been thinking about a replacement. The development roadmap just moves a little too slowly.
Thanks for the info everyone!

There are a few noob threads around here with books to read.

As for my firewalls, I prefer a small box, without a lot of stuff installed running straight IP Tables. Work however wants ASAs and PIXs.
