I’m looking for a Windows 7 compatible IPSec VPN client that allows protocol and port specific rules as well as an aggressive mode.
On Windows XP and Vista we’ve used SafeNet SoftRemote in which you can set up rules for specific protocols and ports. But SoftRemote isn’t compatible with Windows 7.
172.xxx.xxx.1 TCP 1433 172.xxx.xxx.2 TCP 1433 172.xxx.xxx.10 ALL ...
Since the VPN gateway is configured this way the client must mirror these settings.
Does anyone have any other suggestions?
I’ve got some news…
I’ve managed to get SoftRemote to work on Windows 7 x64 through Windows XP Mode. After scouring all corners of the Internet for idéas I had enough information to construct a working solution.
This solution will probably benefit other clients as well!
You’ll find a post here with detailed instructions of how I went about.
I’m not sure if any of these meet your needs, but TechNet has a blog where they tested several clients for compatibility.
According to them a version for Windows 7 of SafeNet SoftRemote is due out in Q4 2009.
