Has anyone succesfully used XP Pro IPSec to connect to Linksys VPN router BEFVP41 V1 router?  I've tried many times with no success.   I have followed this instructions from Linksys and Microsoft.  Any tips or comments would be welcome.

Good luck :-)
Best to use a 3rd party IPSec VPN client such as TheGreenBow

The RV0xx series of Linksys routers work well with the Windows PPTP VPN client.

Thanks cjkurtz. Sorry not more help with your specific problem, but I too have never been able to get it to work with the Windows client. BEFVP41 is most often used for site-to-site VPN's between two of these routers. For that purpose they work quite well and are relatively easy to set up.
TheGreenBow is a true IPSec client and will work.
Cheers !
