I agree, for selected services, just run the secure versions of IMAPS and
POP3S(993/995), and SSH(22) and open up the perspective ports on your
firewall. Forget telnet, it's superceded by SSH.
If you find you're doing lots of other things that are inherently
insecure like XDCMP for X terminals between sites and need a VPN for
Fedora Core, I'd suggest OpenVPN.

Do you want VPN or SSH connect? SSH of course works without problems on
Fedora, both as server as well as client. You can use SSH for tunneling

SSL/TLS encryption. Actual clients on Windows[tm] and Linux do support
these secured services.
