    In my case, here in Bulgaria, I can't - we have clients with dynamic IP addresses
and behind NAT. I use OpenVPN last two months without any problem (except I had to
add alternative ports 'cause in some places 5000/TCP was filtered). I would love to
see OpenVPN and XCA (both available for linux and windows) in Fedora (maybe FC3).
With FC2 I'll surely add IPSec too, but I prefer having them both up and running just
in case (OpenVPN can connect even when you have http proxy only)...
