  • Hello Everyone,

    Does anyone know a working (free?) vpn client for Windows 2000/XP? that can connect to a PFsense (beat2) machine, without having to open any external ports (500 UDP)

    ps. does anyone know why they Cisco VPN client does'nt work with PFsense (beta2)?

  • Check the Utilitieas at http://pfsense.com/index.php?id=33 . I haven't tried these clients yet, but give it ago and let us know. They are reported to work with m0n0 (see the doc link for the one client).
    I also haven't tried the cisco client, so I can't say anything about that. However, I have customer provided watchguard client based on SSH Sentinal that works as a mobile client to my pfSense.

    without having to open ports?  No.  I've never heard of any VPN client, commercial or otherwise, that lets you connect without any open ports.  You could combine something like port knocking with a VPN client to accomplish this.

    Because it's not a normal, standard IPsec VPN client.  It requires xauth, which isn't going to be supported in 1.0.
