I bought an I-mac about six months ago and LOVE it. I'm trying to free myself from PCs but I utilize a RAS Token to securly access my work desktop through my home pc and this is not supported in Mac OS.

I'm looking to replace my notebook with a macbook, and am wondering if anyone has any experience running this type of application through windows on a mac. The software that gets the secure connection is nortel networks VPN client, then I remote access work computer through a citrix server. This is currently the only reason I'm holding onto a pc, and if I can use a mac for this I'll buy a notebook tomorrow.

Thanks for any help.

VPN Tracker supports authentication tokens, but due to the proprietary VPN implementation Nortel use, it's currently not compatible with their devices.

Do you think running windows XP through bootcamp or parallel would allow me to use the token or do you think I need to stick with a PC. I can try it on my imac before I commit with a macbook but I'd still need to buy xp sp2.
