Good question,
I bought it second hand. Is there a way I can check this in the  configuration?

Sorry for the delay.I was on holiday.

I don't know if you can check the configuration as I don't really know much about their products. I just found the PDF and thought it might be usefull.

Hi VMarcus:

First off, you won't be able to run the VPN (at least not easily) without having a static IP address for the NS-5XT's Untrust interface, so make sure have that from your ISP.

After that, you can either purchase IPSec-compatible VPN client software for your PC, or use a more public type of protocol like PPTP or L2TP to encrypt the traffic into your network.  The documentation for these is available from NetScreen's website, but they may require a support contract--only about US$100/year.  The best doc on their site for practical solutions like this is the Concepts and Examples Guide.

I'd *strongly* recommend a support contract anyway so you can get firmware upgrades.  Some of them fix significant problems, and you would be able to call them for assistance, too.
