I never had much luck with the xp ipsec.  It could have just been me
though...  For ease of use I would recommend a client from netscreen or
netgear.  They are identical except for the little emblem and are fairly
easy to configure and lock down.

Subject: [m0n0wall] IPSec Client for WinXP


I have looked at several of the post here looking for information on IPSec
VPN clients for XP. 
I have m0n0wall/Soekris boxes set up at several locations and want to be
able to VPN (IPSec not
PPTP !!!) to the sites for support.

In short .....
I have settled on using the native XP IPSec command ipseccmd.exe that comes
w/ the "MS -
Support Tools/Resource Kit" for ease of intergation on XP.  

My Question .....
Does anyone have ANY experience using "m0n0wall - Allow IPSec client" & the
ipseccem.exe in a
scripted manner?  For my use and that of the clients I am supporting, I find
it much easier to
support and/or replace a WinXP shell cmd script than some other client.

Summary .....
I have looked at the iVPN client (which shows GREAT promise, but not quite
there yet, IMHO) and
most of the other recommendations on the following post:

I am really looking for some interaction w/ someone who is using this client
(MS native
ipseccmd.exe) in a scripted manner.  I am fairly proficient in Win32 shell
scripting (though I
hate to admit it) and feel this is the way to go until there is some forward
movement (from
either MS, iVPN, etc., etc.).

Advanced thanks to all who might reply .... !!

And of course ... Hats off, KUDOS!! to Manuel and the rest of the dev
contributors/team !!!
