Be wary of VPN bloat, or VPNmadness, whence you have so many VPN/VLAN

the passwd for each.  I think was presently have 20 or 25 such silly
things for our "management network" (give or take 5-10, I quit counting).

We have that mess here - times 4, at least - for the customer side of things!

Am I wrong in believing that a simple network is a more secure
network? That since we deal with a lot of customer VPN connections,
rather than NATing them and building holes through all of the
firewalls (3-4 depending) we'd be better off NATing them to a network,
and giving the network the access required? Possibly figure out a way
to PVLAN each customer tunnel so that they can't talk to each other,
