I can't make a lot of sense from that paragraph. But I appreciate the
hardware config is as simple as password and network entry, and the
software client is almost as simple. In addition to the Netgear FVL328
(and FR328S, FVS318), I'm looking at the Linksys BEFVP41 and RV042.

In several shops, I've seen 'black box' (Soekris like) dedicated
hardware; thought I'd be going with one of them and didn't realize the
big names packaged VPN in their soho cases.

...this one is not an option for me...
