      The Shrew Soft VPN client now supports all features planned for 
the 1.0 release. A lot of work was done to bring it in line with the 
ipsec-tools CVS version. This includes support for new XAuth user 
authentication methods as well as automatic policy configuration using 
the extended modecfg facility. In addition, traditional road-warrior 
access methods are also supported. For a complete list of features and 
requirements, please review the howto document available from the 
download page.

      This client software is freeware. When coupled with a vpn gateway 
running ipsec-tools, it can be used as an alternative to expensive 
commercial vpn gateway solutions that support win32 clients. While this 
software does include advanced features such as Nat Traversal, Packet 
Pre Fragmentation, Hybrid XAuth and automatic client configuration, it 
is still missing some options that are available in the more popular 
commercial products. For example, if your remote access needs include 
support for split DNS or stateful client side firewall, this software 
may not be a good fit for your environment.
