While it's possible, there's probably a better way. What are your requirements that you think a nested VPN is the solution? – Chris S Apr 8 '10 at 12:47
There are no requirements, I just wanted to see if it is possible and what the pitfalls are. For an implementation related question visit the link. – Tie-fighter Apr 8 '10 at 13:19
Yep, it'll work. You just incur all the cost of VPNs x2 (lower MTU, higher latency, etc) – Chris S Apr 8 '10 at 13:26

You're likely to start having issues related to MTU, but yes, it can work.

Whether it will work depends on what exact combination you're hoping to achieve.
