Perhaps they fixed it in Windows 2003 R2 or Vista but I haven't tried.
This is how Microsoft works, you pay for new features...

Can you add VID_NATT_IETF_02_N to the list of VIDs or does it break things?
If it works it would add Netscreen NAT-T interoperability as a bonus.

How do the Windows clients know it then? Or do you think they just ignore it?

a Windows 2003 trial copy from the Microsoft website.
