7 Steps total
- VPN from Windows 10 Client to Cisco RV325 SOHO Router. I can connect to my home network, which is behind a Cisco RV325 router, from iOS via a VPN without any problem (well, it took a long time to figure out what the various configuration parameters of IPSec were, but after I did it was easy). I use a pre-shared key.
- Users who just upgraded to Windows 10 from an earlier Windows version, will need to first uninstall their SonicWALL VPN Client & Cisco VPN client, then proceed with the instructions below. Download and install the SonicWALL Global VPN Client from Firewall.cx’s Cisco Tools & Applications section.
Step 1: Uninstall Cisco VPN Client if it was already installed
Uninstall Cisco VPN client from the PC. (If you get and error trying to uninstall, you may need to install DNE updater ftp://files.citrix.com/dneupdate64.msi first)
Step 2: Uninstall DNE updater software
Uninstall any DNE updater software that may be installed. After uninstalling run a registry clean (you can use CCleaner if you like). Then reboot your PC.
Step 3: Run Winfix.exe
After reboot run Winfix.exe from here. ftp://files.citrix.com/winfix.exe
After you run the cleanup reboot your PC again.
Step 4: Install Sonicwall VPN client
SonicWall VPN is will install the DNE service that will work with Windows 10. Install the SonicWALL VPN found here. http://www.gleescape.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/09/sonic64.zip and then reboot your PC.
