Thanks for trying out the client. I don't see any reason why it would be
unable to work.
Doing a quick google search, I found this page ...
... which shows a Linksys setup used to support VPN Client connectivity.
The Shrew Soft client will need to use the direct adapter mode which is
"use an existing adapter and current address" on the General tab of the
VPN Site configuration.
A manual policy will also need to be configured. For example, the sample
configuration provided in the web link I mentioned defines the network
protected by the Linksys device as 192.168.100.0/24. You would need to
define this in the policy tab of your Site Configuration by adding an
'include' network of 192.168.100.0 / 255.255.255.0 to get things working.
Both the Linksys and Shrew Soft Client have debug log output facilities
that could be very valuable in resolving any issues you may encounter.
Please send any more specific questions to the vpn-help list and we will
do what we can to help you out. If you would like to forward debug
output that may contain sensitive information, feel free to send this
directly to me in a separate email so it doesn't end up in the public
