Question Virtual Networking?


I have a little network at home with a suse 6.1 linux server with masquarade to access the internet. Now we want to connect a friend to our network as if he was in our network, but actually he will be sitting at home ( or where ever he likes *grin* ) I heard this was possible with virtual networking. Can anybody tell me how it works and how I can install it?

Virtual private networking is a generic term that describes how to take use public networks as private ones. This normally means tunneling your IP traffic in one of the many tunneling techniques.

Most of the tunneling techniques use cryptographic techniques to insure the privacy and security of the connection.
