  Secure Your Wireless with IPsec
Subject:   Wireless+IPSec with Windows laptops?

Although my personal laptop runs Linux as well (so I can employ IPSec as you've described), my
wife insists on using Windows XP on her laptop. How can I configure a Windows XP laptop to use IPSec such that it would work in the scenario you describe? Any resources to recommend? Thanks in advance.

    Interesting that you should mention Windows XP. That's the next project I have on my books.

    I made one attempt, using a reference I found, but I did not succeed. I'll be trying again, and if I do, I'll be documenting it.

      I managed to set up a IPSEC link between my FreeBSD server and a dual boot Win2000/FreeBSD laptop. The FreeBSD to FreeBSD link worked fine, but I kept getting occasional drop outs when running Win2000 - the link would die, and I'd need to restart the IPSEC service via mmc to get it going again. I've seen others reporting the same problem, so I'll be interested to see how you get on.

      Cheers,

        I had similar problems under XP. Restarting racoon seemed to help too. I'm going to try another IKE daemon and see how that goes.
