Aventail looked good (to me at first), but ask them
about UDP based applications (like Remedy help desk).
Aventail does not support (or encrypt) UDP based
traffic. So you will hit a problem with UDP based
applications. They will not work.
hope this helps
P.S. Check InfoExpress... It is very much like
Aventail but with more options...
