Does anyone know if Windows 7 will support establishing a tunnel to an FVS318v3.  I know its IPSec, but I'm not sure if it can without the vpn client software.

If it is IPSec, then you should use an IPSec client. The best one I know for Windows 7 is NCP Secure Entry ( I use that one very succesfully.   ... Thinkpads_User

No with that with model, but with Juniper and LinkSys, yes, I use it very successfully. ... Thinkpads_User

Thank you. NCP is a good client. I have nothing to do with them, it just works well for me. ... Thinkpads_User
