SSG5 solution for remote access

Hi Experts,

I have an SSG5 configured at a remote site using a L2L tunnel back to HQ works fine.

Problem : I need to find a solution ( ssl not an option since ssg5 doesn't support) for a client to be able to remote into say the DMZ ( or a custom zone ) on the SSG5 to access data from a server.

Is there any 3rd party client  software on the market that can do remote access to this box from anywhere. Looking for ideas and what's required ?

Tnx

Sure. You can use the free ShrewSoft VPN client (www.shrew.net). Configuration tutorials for SSG are in the Wiki of that site.

Cool thanks Q. Seems very straight forward - Do you recommend a certain release for XP  ? That perhaps you have used.

I'm using 2.1.6-beta-7 on Vista (x86)t, but know of no issues with the 2.1.5 stable release on XP. When on XP, I had used beta releases, too. I had (routing) issues with the alpha releases on both XP and Vista some time ago, so I cannot recommend them at the moment.
