I'm running a VPN server to which IP tables limits connections to the IP
addresses of the client offices. However, now the client wants roaming
access to the VPN via laptops - they will be moving around Europe and
the USA. There are two layers of password security, but I'm still
nervous about opening the server to the entire world...
Therefore, is there a nice way to open the firewall for connections just
from Europe and USA?

The SSH brute force thread was very interesting with the recent/tarpit
trap for our less than welcome guests and I would like to implement this
on the VPN ports in the future - but for now I'm just looking for a
Thanks in advance for any input on this...
