Hi Ulrik, if I may, I would suggest using the Safenet IPSEC vpn client for windows in lieu of the
windows client.  I have used it for years for many clients connecting from behind NATed devices with
no problems as long as there are no egress filters in place.  You can buy it very reasonably priced
branded from Netgear in either 1 or 5 user packs (perhaps other packs as well).
I have not tried later versions with Vista or Windows 7so you may want to research that a bit if
those operating systems are in your environment.  Best of luck and let us know how it works out.
See it for sale here:
Or the latest version directly from Safenet (more expensive) here:

We have been using PPTP VPN to give road warriors access to our internal network, we only allow a
few posts to be access, primary our Terminal Servers. This has been working fine for a long time.


However some of the guys have 3G network access on their notebooks, and the 3G provider gives them
an IP address in the RFC-1918 range, so they are passing a NAT router in some way, and this brakes
the PPTP option.


I'm thinking of trying to set up m0n0wall IP SEC -> Windows IP SEC Client, is that an option or am I
moving the wrong way ?


What are you guys using ?


Med venlig hilsen, Best regards
