    Vitual Private Network

    Has anyone had any success creating a virtual private network over the
    Internet? I would like to connect two small networks that both have
    fast access to the Internet. I'm more than willing to do my own
    research on this but I can't find a good resource on this subject.

    A few questions I have are:
    Is the another name for a VPN?
    Does anyone know a resource for this on the net?
    Is a static IP address on both ends a must?
    Is 'blowfish' encryption strong enough to protect information traveling
    through the net?
    Does it create any network traffic that ISPs would find 'suspicious'?
    (currently I use a Linux server to share personal cable access to our
    internal network. it runs a caching DNS, telnet, FTP, etc and our ISP
    doesn't seem to mind)

    Thanks
    -- Joel

    Joel,
    In your letter you asking:
    - Is 'blowfish' encryption strong enough to protect information traveling
    through the net?

    During last contest on encryption key breaking, 56 bit DES was decrypted
    in 2 days and a few hours of 'brute force' calculation method using pretty
    mild resources. Which one is tougher, 'blowfish' or DES?
