    Is it possible to create multiple VPN's on one server using Linux. I would like to provide a few (2 - 5) companies access to data on my server yet I would want the security of keeping this data private from everyone else. I would want to divide this data and assign each "partition" a separate IP address. I know that I can't do this using a MS NOS.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I'm not sure if I'm following you but here goes....

    Yes you can allow multiple Vpn's into a Linux server.

    http://poptop.lineo.com

    The only snafu would be if you want multiple connections from the same ip address. So if the Client NAT's their connections to you it wouldn't work. Unless they have a Linux Firewall doing the NAT'ing. Then they could masq the VPN connections.

    Anyway, as far as the data seperation goes you would just control the access to which ever data by permissions. You could keep the data in seperate directory's and apply permissions to allow only certain people in.

    Hope that helps......


    Cheers,
