Netgear FVS318 VPN Connection

Hey,

So I have just purchased a Netgear FVS318 and when purchased my supplier said it would work as a VPN server and mentioned nothing about specific netgear client software.

As I understand, this is a industry standard IPSec connection so should work with any IPSec VPN client? I have tried with ShrewSoft but cannot get it to work.

I have seen a few entries on google that it is possible but no-one mentions the exact method.

Thanks

No it will not work with "any" IPSec client.
I have heard it will work with ShrewSoft but i haven't tried it.

Other than that there are only paid clients.  It has to be a Safenet VPN client which is also sold under the NetGear Prosafe, Watchguard MUVPN, and one other names. I have used these and they work well. Many find them difficult to set up first time if they are not familiar with them.
The following is a good example set up that works well with the latter clients:

There is one other that works is TheGreenBow client. They have a 30 day trial period. Again I have not tried this one.

No I am afraid I have not seen or done configurations  for that client. The only thing i could suggest is to use the first link I provided to configure the router then try to match client options.
