We plan to install FW-1 from Checkpoint at our office in INDIA. This
would be linked to our corporate headquarters in Tampa U.S.A via IPLC
International Private Leased Circuit.
( Is IPLC needed or we may just go in for the Public Internet )
1. Please let me know if the VPN that would be created by encryption,
would it be under scrutiny
or illegal under the US laws.I heard that Checkpoint does not fall
under U.S encryption laws.
2. Secondly is it necessary that our Corporate HQ also have the same
firewall so as to establish
a VPN between the two locations i.e. can two different Firewalls
from different vendors
understand the encryption between them.
I am asking this because then do we have to decide for the same firewall
or we may have
different firewalls.This mail is for all experts or gurus in Firewall and
their suggestions would
help me a lot as I have to decide on the viabilty of such a VPN and its
Thanks in advance.
