    Default VPN

    How do I set up a vpn connection so that it connects without user interaction and reconnects upon disconnect? I'm trying to make a router on openSUSE 11

    Ah, well. When I migrated to Linux, I was a bit worried about configuring the internet. When I called up my ISP's support engineer, he told me that it could not create a dial-up network connection on dsl done because VPN is a microsoft protocol. I told him that on Windows, I go through a router which had a VPN setup. He told me that all I had to do in Linux was plug my network cable into the router.

    OpenSUSE detected my router and configured computer and router into a network. Now internet works flawlessly. Therefore, all you have to do is to create a VPN connection on your router in Windows and then plug your router into a Linux machine. Ought to work.

    well, I'm trying to make a opensuse-based router, so is there any way to keep permanent connection? I'm quite a newbie, so if there's solution, would you please describe it?

    Depends on the VPN. IPSec: configure the peering and be done with it.
    OpenVPN: configure the daemon to start during system startup.
    SSH: create an init script in /etc/init.d that runs ssh with the
    necessary parameters on start and kills it on stop. And so on, I hope
    you get the picture.
