- Functional but difficult to set up
The VPN client is very functional and dependable once I was able to get it set up. The problem was I had used my Netgear VPN router with another VPN client before purchasing the Netgear Prosafe Client. I had the previous client set up and working, but I could not get the Netgear client to set up using the same settings. There are no step-by-step instructions for setting up a new tunnel on the router or client. I finally contacted Netgear support after many calls. They, too, had difficulty and could not establish a connection using the settings that had worked fine on another brand client. In the end, the support person built a new tunnel on my router and sent me an exported setup I then loaded on my client. All worked well from there but after 1 ? hours on the phone.
Bottom line is that setup is difficult, but the end result is a functional and dependable VPN client. Don't be afraid to contact Netgear support if you have problems setting up.
- No support, doesn't work with Vista
I think the title about says it all. I couldn't get the software to work with my Netgear router so I called support. Since my router was out of warranty, they wouldn't provide me support even though I just purchased the software from Amazon the week before. They indicated that had I purchased it from them, they would support it. (I'll check tomorrow, but I think I have a newer router elsewhere that I can use to get support).
However...even if I can get it to work, I didn't see that it doesn't work with Vista. Luckily, I have an XP computer I can fail to get it to work on. (I can't fail on the Vista computer since it won't even install).
Needless to say, I'm somewhat disappointed. The only document that describes how to get it to work with the router I have is inaccurate (and overly complicated) and in the end...failed to set up the software in some way that would make it connect to the router.
- Easy to use
I had no problems at all. Worked jus the way we needed it to.
- Poor Support, Design and documentation
I purchased several copies of this product. They were intended to connect remote employees to Netgear's FVL328 router. Needless to say it was extremely difficult and time consuming to setup. And I consider myself highly competent in Server-Client network setup and configuration. FVL328 supports Dynamic DNS services, but the Client Software or FVL328 documentation says nothing of such setup. In fact it is full of typos and inconsistencies. By secondguessing the online posted manual for FVL328 (make sure you get the latest one) and using my experience I was able to connect to the FVL328. Then we upgraded the McAfee Viruscan from 7.0 to 8.0. Client computers (WinXP or Win2K) started to crash to Blue Screen of Death (BSOD). Clean installs and reinstalls in various order did not hel either. Mcafee has this bug in their knowledgebase and said that the SafeNet SoftRemote software (OEMed by Netgear as Prosafe VPN Client) release 10.1 had this issue but was corrected in release 10.3.5. Netgear does not even want to provide an update to this and is still under release 10.1.1 for 2.5 years. So either buy SafeNet SoftRemote or do not relly on Mcafee, hince the 2 stars...more info
