Anyone using VPN software with Win2000 in VPC?

in Mac Software edited January 2014
I'm looking to get a powerbook, but I need to use a clients VPN network, and they ONLY support windows 2000.

Anyone set up VPN networks with VPC(win2000)? Any problems I should look out for?

    Most companies use the Cisco VPN software and they do have a Darwin (Mac) client. I have not tried this out on my iBook yet. The other solution is to use VirtualPC to emulate a x86 machine.

    Win2k on my VPC runs great. I have a 700mhz ibook with 384 megs ram. I do some networking stuff at school. I recommend the VPN software for the Mac side that you can download at Microsofts site. Running the Internet though VPC to me seems slower but than you can expect that considering its all Emulated hardware.

    Thanks for the responses.

    The client uses an AVAYA VPN client I believe, and there is no Apple version of that software. I understand Windows 2000 under VPC can do pretty much everything a Wintel machine can.. so I'm hoping it will work..

    I'm installing win2000 and VPC 6 now for this purpose. U. RI uses 802.1x and "TTSL" which needs a "certificate" for this software called Odyssey, and the networking people couldn't "convert it" for Mac to work with Meeting House, which is Mac client software. I'll let you all know if IP sharing or whatever works out in the coming weeks.
