I have a companion question:
It seems fair to expand on that question with a new one ... HERE:
I am having trouble aligning settings information between VPN client programs.
So far, I'm using the Netgear Prosafe VPN client and am trying to use the NCP Secure Entry client.
So far, I'm able to use the Netgear software on Windows 7 and connect right away.
But, on the same network, I can't connect with Windows 10 at all.
Also, it appears from vpncasestudy.com that using NCP will require that I change the VPN server settings - which I'm not all that happy to think about as long as the Netgear clients work.
Some Windows 10 machines won't connect at all.
Others will connect but seem to lose their connections a bit too frequently.
This all with a Netgear FVS336Gv2 that I'm going to be updating (firmware) on Friday.
One hopes that the newer firmware will make things better but something tells me that Windows 10 has its own issue.
I'd like to focus this question on the existing router and explore what might be done. But, in view of the Windows 7 experience, I'm a bit hard-pressed to know just what.
