VPN with Netgear ProSafe or Windows VPN?

By mellow52 ·
Does using the Netgear ProSafe VPN software hold any advantage (speed / security)over a regular Windows VPN?

There is only a VPN router on the server side and software clients on the outside.

Do you even need a VPN router when you use Vindows VPN client?

If you have the SRXN3205 model then yes by all means.For starters it supports up to 5 SSL VPN tunnels and 5 IPsec VPN tunnels all at the same time.Talk about is the real deal.

Netgear FVS318G

by mellow52 In reply to Some more info

I am looking at the new Netgear FVS318G

hoping that it will give me faster VPN speeds.

What I have now is FIOS 35mb down / 15mb up with a Linksys RV082 VPN router but could never get the Linksys VPN client working so just used the MS Windows VPN connection for the last 2 years.

I like the new FVS318G because of its gigabit ports.

Definately a good buy...

I would definately go for something like that as it is very reliable and also supports a life-time warranty.Your setup at the moment is a bit on the vintage side of how things are done nowadays so looking into getting something like the FVS318G will only benefit you in the long run....and it is much simpler to use.Hope i was able to help and thanks for the thumbs up.
