Raptor supports two types of VPNs
1) SWIPE (proprietary) for Raptor firewalls (and clients) only
2) IPSEC which is interoperable with non-Raptor firewalls
Swipe-based tunnels hide the addresses of tunnel endpoints on internal
networks from the outside world. Conversely, IPSEC-based tunnels do
IPSEC-based tunnels use separate authentication and encryption headers.
In contrast, SWIPE tunnels use a single header for encryption and
Which one you use depends on your specific requirements.
Hope this helps.
