comment N2N VPN + Client VPN - recommended technology and network architecture?
Disagree. SSL-VPN is application layer solution. IMO the closer to the wire, the better I would say IPSec

It would be nice if that was documented. Like, really nice.

comment Deep Packet Inspection - Does it work on video content too?
Of course, your concern is not deep packet inspection, but more DHCP/ARP poisoning/DNS poisoning issues. Watch for the fake freedom site!

comment What is an “application firewall”?
Yes, I read both wikipedia and the other entry. It seems plausible, but I was hoping for "This is how a socket firewall works." I know that it lets far too much stuff in silently on osx, only blocks TCP and UDP, stealth is implemented with an ipfw rule. AFP flies right through. More questions coming ;)

sigh I was getting that impression. Time to bust out ctags. The thing is that the application firewall is undocumented for some reason... and the man page does not tell you where it's defined!
