Looking for advice on VPN products for a small business. Something that won't kill a budget, but something that won't break in a year. Will be linking two Unix based networks through the internet. Thanks!

Look at www.gta.com I use gbware. I have it set up with 5 interfaces running on a 500MHz P3.
It only uses 3% cpu utilization. In fact the CPU fan died a few months back, but it runs so cool I didn't bother to change it.
Besides being a great firewall, you can set up a point to point vpn and it has a multiple interface option (the multi interface option gives you around 20 interfaces). There is also a vpn acceleration option.

I'm not opposed to spending a little money on it, but I also need something with more than a 4 port. This will increase the costs but it has to be done. Any other suggestions or articles on an end product would be helpful. Thanks!

I would recomend OpenVPN ( http://openvpn.net/ ) It is very secure and runs great on Unix/Linux and XP/server 2003. It is open source so it is free and I actually prefer it over ISA server 2003. The configuration can seem strange but once u get it you will love it, here is a great help article for instalation and config, ( http://www.informit.com/articles/article.asp?p=605499&rl=1 ) It is from Osnews.com under the OpenVPN article. Hope this Helps.
