The safenet client has a policy file export that I use all of the time.
You create a policy as you want it, (I usually do everything but the
username and shared key), export it to the file, then you have the
client do a default installation, reboot.  When they come back up, they
can double click on the file I've sent them, fill in their username and
shared key, save changes and be good to go.  Would that help?  If you
have other questions on it, I am happy to help.

Wow, I didn't know that. I purchased a couple copies of SN to use. The
thing I don't like about it is having to configure the remote client,
which can be 300 miles away. I'm looking at SonicWall to replace M0n0 in
that respect.
SonicWall has no fat client that gets installed on the remote computer,
and all configuration can be done on the SonicWall box. I'd love to hear
the experience of others in dealing with remote users, especially users
that travel with laptops.
