Native Win7 IPSec client connecting to


Configuration instructions for connecting a native Windows 7 IPsec client to a RV082. Two scenarios are included: a scenario with direct connection and a scenario with Windows 7 behind a NAT device.

absolutely fantastic,  I do not have a Win7 client to test this against, but I know lots of people would welcome your procedure.

I guess this procedure might also be relevant, maybe worth a test with the WRV and SA500 series product. Since they all use the quick VPN client .

Just out of interest does Windows 7 32 and 64bit versions still have a pptp client ?

For your information, Windows 7 32&64 bits do have an embedded PPTP client.

Have a good day.

Is PPTP really an issue or can you do this in native Windows.  The significant thing about this documents is that cisco's QuickVPN client modified the native Windows XP/2000/vista/7 IPSec environment.  This document goes through the painful manual process  of documenting the how to get native  IPSec windows 7 client working.  Accolades
