BEFVP41Remote access from Windows 7 Native ipSec client

I have a Linksys BEFVP41 router configured with a single VPN tunnel at one site to provide remote access to the LAN at that site via the VPN tunnel.
I wish to configure a remote Windows 7 professional PC via an internet connection to the VPN.
I need to configure the Windows 7 VPN client as a native IPsec client (not using L2TP). how can I configure a windows 7 native IPSec client.


Thanks,

Roger

The Windows VPN client will not support a proper IPSec configuration.  You will need a 3rd party IPsec VPN client such as TheGreenBow:

How to configure for the BEFVP41:

A free option is ShrewSoft, but I do not have links to documentation as to how to configure for your specific router:
