VPN - IPSEC between my windows 8 and an remotly AIX 7.1 server....possible?

Hi,

I have an AIX 7.1 server on a lab connected to its local network, but it can be accesible from internet.  Is possible to connect windows 8 as VPN client to an AIX 7.1 server?

I have found google but no success.

Thanks.

IPsec is a protocol that is not box dependent. So long as the AIX end provides vanilla IPsec with 2 phases, authentication and the basic IPsec protocol, it should work. That is why I mentioned the trial version.

I have NCP running on my Windows 8.1 Pro 64-bit machine and it connects to a variety of Juniper and Cisco boxes.

I have not tried it on AIX as the need has not presented itself to me.

For VPN IPsec on Windows 8 / 8.1, I use NCP Secure Entry. I find it to be best overall. Go to www.ncp-e.com and you can get a trial version to see if it works.

Thank you for the update. You can always post more questions here and NCP is very good with technical support on their trial product.
