 Date:  Mon, 4 Oct 2004 11:00:26 -0400
The page below describes using the local Security Settings in Windows 2000
(secpol.msc) for a ZyWALL firewall. The page goes through a lot of junk on
how to "Create a custom MMC console" which they never tell you to use...
This is as close to a "embedded client" as you will find. The page also
cites some Microsoft pages on IPSEC and Windows 2000. AFAIK, the theory is
similar to what you can find with XP. 

*WARNING* I had tried something similar before the SonicWALL VPN client
supported XP. Key word is tried - I could not get it to work. When SonicWall
upgraded to a newer version of the SafeNet client that supported XP a couple
of weeks later, I gave up in secpol.

This is *NOT* for the faint hearted. If someone is able to get this to work,
please share with the group.
