Re: microsoft vpn client and cisco router

That client you are talking about is L2TP/IPSEC client.

I have done a connection using the windows client but with a Cisco Concentrator:

For a router check:

The main problem is that if you are behind a NAT/PAT device the L2TP (that checkes the header) will discard the packets. It appears IOS 12.4 corrects that.

Please rate if this helped.

Re: microsoft vpn client and cisco router

It should work, but I have not done it personally. I have seen documentation from Linksys that shows how to configure Microsoft IPSEC to do a remote access VPN tunnel to a Linksys VPN router as they don't have their own client (or at least didn't). I think the model was a BEFVP41 or something like that, so it might be worth downloading the manual off their website and looking throught it. HTH
