I've been working with Linux for such a long time and I'm not sure what
that VPN client is. Truth is, though most popular network devices
(Cisco, etc.) use VPN that Linux supports, it's Microsoft's VPN system
that's most prevalent in the companies I've encountered. Does anyone
know which VPN system works with MS? The choices for Linux I'm aware of
are Open/FreeSWAN (IPSec), Cisco VPN 5000 client, PPTP VPN and OpenVPN

Security is very important to roaming devices which have to go through
public infrastructures like the Internet.
