Are these supplied by WindowsUpdate? If so, I'm fine...

I've read this too.

OK. So one question remains.
Will the setup work with Roadwarrior-MobileClients?
So, will it work with dynamic IPs?

The point is, that PPTP is not suitable for our needs, and we
want the security through an IPsec-Tunnel (OpenVPN isn't yet
available in M0n0). So What I found so far for Windows is, that
it will only work with Certs and static IPs, but I'll reread the texts
mentioned, and try to see what I missed...

Thanks so far ...
