Hi all

I'm looking for a basic but reliable quality VPN router.
A must-have is support for native VPN client in Windows XP and Vista.

I like Linksys but open for other recommendations.

The Linksys RV042 isn't new and I haven't been able to verify whether
it really supports the Windows VPN client.

Any inputs, anyone?

Thank you in advance.

Any luck - Im looking for the same native windows VPN client support
(PPTP) - so far I found:

snapgear lite (SG300)
http://www.securecomputing.com/index.cfm?skey=1556

SMCBR21VPN
http://www.smc.com/index.cfm?event=viewProduct&localeCode=EN_GBR&cid=1&scid=17&pid=1654

if you have found any others please post - I dont understand why PPTP server
is so poorly supported by the usual networking manufacturers.

Cheers
Steve

just checked out the rv042 you mention - looks like it does support PPTP
server:

http://linksys.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/linksys.cfg/php/enduser/std_adp.php?p_faqid=5565&lid=

any more PPTP server VPN routers out there?
