The company I work for uses a lot of multicast tunnels, usually with a
QOS/GRE implementation with quite pricy hardware.  I googled around a bit,
it looks like basic vpn is supported for FreeBSD. I guess my questions are

1.)    Does FreeBSD play well with vpn-capable routers  (like a 3Com 5012)

2.)    Would getting acceptable latency tunneling multicast mean hardware
that's just as expensive as a router costing thousands?
