    What's your budget? What is the purpose of the VPN? Is it for site to site or remote connectivity? Who is going to implement this solution?

    I think he means any opensource VPN solutions are out of the question. And I agree fully. Plus if this is going to be a site to site VPN solution, I doubt any opensource VPN products will be able to do it let alone work properly in a business setting.

    You still didn't answer all of my questions. What is your budget? And who is going to implement this? What I'm getting at is, someone needs to have a pretty good knowledge of networking and VPNs. This is not going to be something you're going to piece together by visiting online forums. The solutions I would recommend are from long established companies which have a professional services arm. Their professional services will go in and install/configure the equipment in your existing environment. But for a fee. This has to be factored into the overall budget and based on what I'm seeing so far, you cannot bypass paying for this.

    I've also thought up of more questions which are important in scoping out a proper solution. What are your Internet pipes at the two locations you want to create a site to site tunnel? How much data is going to be going through the VPN? What remote clients will be using the VPN? What country/countries is this solution being deployed?

    The short recommendation to your general question is a device which can do both IPSEC and SSL tunneling.
