The default IPsec stack with W2K does work. One caveat which their website
documentation does not make particularly clear is that it *expects* static
IPs. Don't expect to be able to use it on your laptop from home, dialed up
to an ISP without changing the attributes in MMC accordingly. Won't work.
The SafeNet client was rather buggy in regards to x509 certs, but I think
that has been fixed for a while now.
