vpn client software with windows 10

M400 12.3

I'm not sure if VPN ipsec shrewsoft still compatible with windows 10, is there another one that is recommended to use free of charge? What are you all using?

    Shrew still works on my Win 10 PC
    Look at SSLVPN, or IKEv2 for Win 10.
    There are descriptions in the docs on how to set these up.

    Ok. As always, Thank you Bruce!

    SSLVPN agent (installation required) works but is slow and not very stable (drops a lot), at least from Starbucks. IKEv2 VPN is faster and MUCH more stable, even from Starbucks. IKEv2 VPN is built into Windows 10.

    I protect mine with two-factor authentication.

    @WGM shrew can technically still work with windows 10. However, as they haven't updated their client in years, it's not something WatchGuard recommends. Both IKEv2 and L2TP use clients that are built into most operating systems.

    VPN stability will be dependent on where your data is going, and what's between points A and B. I'd suggest setting up multiple options, and going with the one that performs best in your instance.
