tcp/ip packets encrypted on the LAN

Hellow :
Does it exist a method where the traffic in the local area network  goes
encrypted. I mean, when I execute snoop from a Sun Sparc station ( a
sniffer, I think) I can see all the passwords and all the informations
that are travelling for the network. I dont want that people could
sniff the root password, then I would like to know who I can do that
this traffic travel encypted in a secure algorithm.
I know that I can constraint the access to root to the console, but I
need acces from my PC, not only from the console.

Thank you in advance.

Later versions of AIX (certainly 4.3) support VPN's at the TCP layer.

1. Encrypted Packets over TCP/IP Tunnel?

Hi All!
2 quick questions:

1)  Is it possible to encrypt data going over a TCP/IP, UDP tunnel under
linux.

2) If so, where would I be able to find information on how-to set it up.

I've already searched through deja-news and such, maybe I'm trying the
wrong keywords.  I've heard that OpenBSD has this, is this maybe a project
someone is working on?

Thanks!
