i was hoping someone can just clear this up for me:

i want to set up a vpn and allow roaming users to connect.

the roaming users will ALL be connecting to the internet via a standard home type NAT broadband router(i.e users will be connecting from behind a firewall and don't have a public IP). They will be using SafeRemote which i know supports NAT-T. The VPN router at the work end does have a direct connection to the internet(it has a static public IP address).

so my question is, what devices need to support NAT-T for this to work? ...from my understanding only the client software(SafeRemote) and the work VPN router needs to support NAT-T ..is this correct? ....or does the home users broadband router have to support NAT-T too?

NAT-T works by autodecting NAT device between VPN server and VPN Client. So, to answer your question, Yes, only the client and server need to support NAT-T. The router at user end does not have to.

Having said that, there are some security concerns over NAT-T. Check the following articles.
