I have an old Netgear FVS318 Firewall.  It sure looks like it's configurable for VPN client software.  

http://support.netgear.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/999/~/how-to-connect-netgear-vpn-client-software-to-fvs318-or-fvm318-routers

The site recommends Netgear VPN client at $80 a license.  Can I make one of the open-source clients or the Cisco client work with FVS318 instead?  For example:

OpenVPN
LogMeIn
ShrewSoft
...

Will all of these be compatible with my FVS318?
