A company uses Nortel's Contivity Virtual Private Network (VPN) Client to connect to company A. They have to connect to company B using another version of the VPN client. Can it maintain both connections to both companies using one personal computer? Is it possible to use just one version of the VPN client to establish connections to both companies? Maintaining both connections simultaneously might not be possible, but the company should be able to connect to either site using the newer version of the Contivity client if company B's extranet access switch is using Internet Protocol Security and ISAKMP/Oakley Key Exchange protocol.
