Forum OpenACS Q&A: Another SonicWall plug

38: Another SonicWall plug (response to 1)
Posted by C. R. Oldham on
Let me also put in a plug for the SonicWalls.  We just got one and I've been extraordinarily happy with it.  And I sleep better at night, too. 😊

One disadvantage, however, is that they license the Windows VPN client on a per-user basis, and it does not currently work under Windows XP.  This is a pain, and the client is expensive.  I did read on the FreeS/WAN list, though, that there has been some success connecting Linux with FreeS/WAN to a SonicWall via IPSEC, so you may not need the Win32 client.
