Implement Solaris-Linux IPSec connectivity
The Linux implementation of IPSec is FreeS/WAN; Solaris provides its own implementation in Solaris 8.

For this example, the Solaris machine is a Sparc20, running Solaris 8, and the Linux system is a laptop, running a heavily modified copy of Mandrake Linux.
