I need to setup a VPN so users can remote into a network on a DG834G. Can I use the windows VPN client or do I need this prosafe software. Also how do I actually set up the VPN on the router side and on the client side

Netgear DG834G acts as IPSec VPN endpoint, hence you cannot use windows network connection for establishing VPN tunnel; however, you have option to use inbuilt IPSec service or better use prosafe VPN client.

Please look at the article below to configure DG834 and prosafe client:

Please let know if you need more details.

Thank you.

How can I use the IPSec service? Is the prosafe free to download?

If you have access to Netgear website you should be able to download the client; you might need to have active support contract but not 100% sure.

There are few IPSec clients available but the configuration settings are not available, one such free client is from shrew soft [http://www.shrew.net/download/vpn]

Thank you.
