VPN Clients

Many enterprises deploy Virtual Private Networks (VPN). To connect your PC to their gateway, you must use a VPN client software. The Alcatel Secure VPN client and the NetScreen Remote VPN client software work fine with the Alcatel Speed Touch Home and with the Thomson SpeedTouch 510 . Keep in mind that you need to load Security Policies that match your network provider’s VPN gateways.

The NetScreen Remote VPN client software works fine with the US Robotics Broadband router (USR8000). The Alcatel Secure VPN client software, however does not work with the US Robotics Broadband router (USR8000) but will work with the Netgear Broadband router (here’s looking at you, Dave).
