Vista-compatible VPN client for Linksys BEFVP41 router?
I have a Linksys BEFVP41 router that supports VPN. Under XP, I used The
Greenbow VPN client, which worked very nicely. It is not, however, Vista
compatible and The Greenbow says they won't have a Vista client until next
month. Has anyone found a client that will work under Vista with this
router?

What the Greenbow does is costuming the IPSec for the previous Windows OS. MS has made some changes on IPSec settings. However, you may be able to create IPSec to connect to the Linksys BEFVP41.

I could not configure IPSec under Vista to connect with this router.

However . . .

The NCP VPN client does work under Vista. It's a bit on the expensive
side ($144 US), however it works and, apparently, quite reliably. I
haven't finished my testing but it gave me full access to my home LAN,
including telnet to Linux devices, and has some good firewall
security. Once I got it configured (not easy -- lots of tweaking on
both my router and the VPN client) it was just a single click to
connect.
