Sorta.  A friend has a client that uses 4 of those to form a VPN and
for remote access.  He had trouble setting them up, so I logged in
remotely and fixed it.  I had plenty of trouble trying to figure out
the IPSEC VPN settings for 3 tunnels.  The problem was the usual
subnet mistake.  Make sure each remote network is on a unique subnet.
For example, a 4 node system would have:
  192.168.101.xxx
  192.168.102.xxx
  192.168.103.xxx
  192.168.104.xxx
It will somewhat function with everything on the same subnet but it's
much easier and more reliable if every remote office has its own
subnet and not have to deal with duplicate IP's.  Same with remote
users calling into via the VPN.  Make sure that none of the subnets
duplicate the callers home network or you'll get irate calls for
stupid things like his network printer or NAS box doesn't work when he
connects.  That means don't use 0, 1, or 2 for the 3rd octet.

I didn't try connecting more than one remote user to the built in VPN
servers at a time, so I don't have any performance numbers.  In the
past, previous Linksys consumer routers just didn't have the
horsepower to handle more than one IPSEC VPN connection at a time.

You might want to look at the emulator to see what you're getting
into:
