Vista is just another NT based O/S like Win 2k, XP and 2k3. IPsec is part of
the Vista O/S(s) at least on Vista Home Premium and Ultimate that I have
used. And the rules for IPsec can be applied to all four NT based platforms,
even though you don't see Vista being mentioned.
I use IPsec to supplement Vista's FW, XP's FW and any 3rd party FW solution
I have used on the NT based O/S, for a machine that will have a direct
connection to the modem and therefore a direct connection to the Internet.
I implement/enable the client side AnalogX IPsec policy rules and disable
the server side rules, as I don't have anything on the server side being
exposed to the Internet. http://www.analogx.com/CONTENTS/articles/ipsec.htm http://support.microsoft.com/kb/813878
