Over time, jumpNet's VPN servers became bottleknecks regarding bandwidth. Currently, the best VPN server in jumpNet offers 20MBit/s upstream, which is okay but not sufficient for large file transfers like backups. In this article, I describe how to build a L2TP/IPSec VPN server with OSPF rotuing capability.
jumpNet is fine - no question. But it's small and some how I got used to it. There is little new to discover (maybe I'm going to realize a point-to-point radio link this summer, but that's another story) and so I decided to follow up an old plan: Connecting the jumpNet to dn42.
Some time ago I moved from Zähringe Straße to Merzhauser Straße. What a lucky coincidence, that I moved into the appartment of one of the jumpNet participants. Time to change the topology of the jumpNet a bit.
