VPN - Windows 7 Home Premium - Safe@office

Does anyone have a solution for using VPN with Windows 7 Home Premium and connecting to a safe@office? Apparently the secure remote software won't work with 64bit Windows 7 OS. I've tried several apps with no success.... and i want to try doing this without having to upgrade the software.

Ideas?

The safe@office supports L2TP and PPTP and is compatible with the built in Windows client.

It won't work with Windows 7 Home Premium. I've tried to follow the instructions on their site for L2TP, but it didn't work.

One of the things to consider is that I believe you have to have the firewall turned on on your PC for L2TP to work. It is intertwined with the IPSEC service. It should work with W7. Often 3rd party firewall and internet security apps can cause issues too. Disabling them may not help you may have to unistall them or configure them properly to support L2TP. I know that is the case with Norton Internet Security or 360.

Oh, have you tried a non-Windows 7 L2TP connection?
