Cisco VPN client how to configure it to be used with SOHO routersHi I have got diffe


I have got different clients with different SOHO routers on sites (Netgear , Linksys, SnapGear,,,,etc)

All those clients use VPN IPSec .

As you know that those routers has many entries :

Tunnel name

key lifetime

Preshared Secret

Phase 1 proposal

Phase 2 Proposal ,,,,,etc

I am trying to familiarize myself to use different VPN clients (a piece of software ) , that will be installed on clients’ laptops to access their work network from home

I came across a problem with Cisco VPN client V5.0.06 I could not find all the above entries.

I know Cisco devices are proprietary, does that mean cisco vpn client is not compatible with those router ?

You are correct. The Cisco VPN client will only work with Cisco/Linksys hardware. The PTP VPN standards would have you be able to connect sites to sites based on those standards, but the Cisco VPN client does not connect the same way.
