I have a number of Solaris 8 servers at local and remote locations. I also have an old Skip server to encrypt traffic between the offices and selected remote servers. There is also a Sonicwall for VPN services for remote users to be able to connect to our network.

This is my first implementation on this so I am researching.

I would like to get rid of the skip server and use IPsec or IKE on the Solaris servers and on the Sonicwall. Then my pcs on the inside network can just use the sonicwall as the encryption gateway to the remote Solaris 8 servers. I have been reading on Solaris 8 IPsec and found that it will only work between Sparc servers. Is that correct?

I also am a bit confused about the role IKE plays. It seems to work seamlessly with IPsec. Can you have one (IPsec) without the other.

Also, I am planning on moving to Solaris 10 but thought I would start by getting rid of the skip server.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.
