We are happy to announce the availability of the Static IPsec VPN app from Tim Burgess! This app makes it possible to create IPsec VPN connections between your ClearOS system and third party systems including Cisco, Sonicwall, Linksys, pfSense, Watchguard and others. Static IPsec VPN also supports road warriors, dynamic tunnel management, dead peer detection, advanced settings for IKE, ESP, etc, and more. The app is available in ClearOS Marketplace for a one-time price of $50 and includes forum support -- a place to find help with interoperability, security and fine tuning.
A basic version is also available for free. If you need to connect your ClearOS system to other ClearOS systems, the free version will get you up and running. Though there's no support for dynamic IPs and the software is provided as-is, it is certainly a great solution for non-mission critical scenarios. For those of you looking for support for dynamic IPs and need mission critical reliability for ClearOS-to-ClearOS connections, check out Dynamic VPN -- a free app included in ClearOS Professional Basic/Standard/Premium.
