    Unfortunately, Network Alchemy's hardware, assuming you are talking about
    the CryptClusters, has been EOL'ed for quite a while now.

    My previous work place had a couple hundred of them and I thought they were
    one of the best VPN devices out there, probably still is.

    It's unfortunate that they are no longer available.

    However, I believe some of the functionalities were incoprated into their
    IPSO software/appliances.
