Yes, it sounds promising.  However, man ipsec doesn't tell me how to set
the things up.  Is there some tutorial that I could read or..?
/usr/share/examples doesn't seem to have anything for ipsec.

(BTW, I got gif going pretty fast, I could use it, but it does no encrypting,
so ipsec sounds like a better alternative.)

Thanks again,
