It really depends on your firewall and whether it can forward IPSec. An
OpenBSD firewall can, as can a Linksys or Dlink appliance. Most
firewalls that can *forward* IPSec can also *do* IPSec, so their would
be no need to put a Linksys BEFVP41 on the corporate network - just use
the existing firewall (assuming it's not some POS from Checkpoint that
charges you an arm and a leg to use IPSec).
