Depends... The linksys I have only supports L2PT, IPSEC, and PPTP. I had to toggle these on. Then there is SSL and Vista's SSTP type VPN connections, which you would need to possible enable, but I'd think if you're not to strong on security then it would be allowed anyway- SSTP is just running over port 443.

Good luck,
QUOTE Thanks
