I'm looking for a VPN Client which is ment to support all kinds of Firewalls (InstaGate, SonicWall, Zywall, etc.). Does anyone know of such a universal client?

I am not aware of any such client.  Companies like SonicWall rely on their client licensing fees for income!

SSH Sentinel should be "generic". We've used it with Zyxel routers (Prestige and Zywall) , I'd be surprised if it was not possible to get it working with Sonicwall or Cisco.

You used to be able to download a Try Before You Buy version - the only annoyance was if you liked it, it could be fiddly getting a Fully Licenced version to install over the top of the trial version but the suppliers were able to help when that happened.
