    OpenVPN (free)
    Greenbow (Pay for)
    SSH Sentinel (free for non-commercial use) if you can find it

    if your using RV series Router you can also Windows PPTP client.and enable PPTP on the RV0xx router.

    I am using RV042 and managed to get Win PPTP to work but is that less secure?

    There's isn't a program that will work exactly like Quickvpn but if you search these forums you see there's a way that you can use "wget" and a standard vpn client to do the same job.

    Toxic,

    When you list OpenVPN as alternatives, do you mean OpenVPN clients can connect to RV series routers, or to a server running inside the network behind the router? I have not heard of anyone connecting an OpenVPN client directly to the RV series of routers.

    My appologies I thought this was an IPSec client, however it looks like it does not support IPSec. oh well...

    That looks like a nice client Toxic. I would also like to know if anyone has used the Netgear or DLink clients as they are between $40 and $50 dollars (cheapest I have found) and are rumored to be private labels versions of the Safenet Client. They claim on there respective web sites to be able to connect to third party devices that are VPNC certified. Are any of the Linksys devices VPNC certified??

    edit: vpnc.org lists the RV82 with firmware 1.3.2 only, but I be the other RV sersies should be fine.
