of course, I thought you were talking about IPSEC enabled firewall/gateways. Yes. Once you do that the problem will be a non-issue. You just "do it" on the MS side, lordy lordy. Were you leaving the IPSEC ports completely open? Where did they forward to? What about NAT? Yeah, once you have these guys up facing the outside it should be no problem.
I've done it w/o problems when you have the VPN device sitting at the edge. Otherwise you will have to invest some time.
