Which requires the least work Wndows client side, and which is better
overall? OpenSwan or OpenVPN?

I have never setup a VPN myself. So it is part need , part curiousity.

Please advise.


I have done IPSec VPNs (but not OpenSWAN) and OpenVPN.  MY vote is with OpenVPN.

IIUC IPSec is now part of Fedora so OpenSwan would not be needed.
