No - the SSL box is used to establish network connectivty and provide authentication - all via SSL. It is not a hardware unit that provides IPSec VPN connectivity like you get from the Juniper Screen OS boxes, CheckPoint, Nortel, Cisco.

The Juniper SSL VPN is designed for temporary remote access to end users-- employees, third parties, telecommuters, etc. As the name suggests, all connectivity is done through SSL, and it is not designed for, nor capable of, permanent site-to-site VPN connections like an IPSEC tunnel to another company as you mention. As Kevin mentions, you'd need a different product like a Cisco router/firewall to do that.

Or a Juniper firewall or router.
While the SSLVPN will communicate with a client PC via ESP, the connection is negotiated via SSL.
