Both Windows XP and Windows 2000 come with a a built-in IPSec client which allows users to secure their traffic from their machine to an IPsec server. This technology has been widely deployed to protect wireless LANs, as IPsec can be used to secure traffic as it passes over the air from the wireless user to the Bluesocket wireless gateway. Unfortunately, the built in Windows client can be a bit confusing to configure. To ease configuration and use of Windows IPsec, bluesocket has created a freely distributed tool. This document describes the installation, configuration and use of the Bluesocket Windows IPsec configuration tool.
