There is one major problem with the Win2000/XP internal IPSEC client.
You need admin rights if you want to change the IPSEC rules. This is
needed every time you dial into the internet and get a new dynamic IP
address. In most corporate environments it is strictly forbidden that
the users have local admin rights on their machines.

Best regards.
