Is there a way to connect to VPN through a proxy?

Is there a way to connect to VPN through a proxy?

Is there a way to connect to VPN through a proxy?

I have a vpn setup at work, but I wist to connect from home, except my laptop runs through a proxy at home in order to connect to the internet.

The proxy software I use is Proxy+ (it's free ok) but there's no documentation for vpn...

Thanks for the help :)

RE: Is there a way to connect to VPN through a proxy?

Make sure that particular proxy ( proxy+) supports IPSEC, or it will not work.  If you have a ipsec(vpn client) provided by your work and install and configured it on your internal home network, the proxy server will have to support IPSEC or you will have to install the vpn client on your proxy server, which will open up a security threat.

RE: Is there a way to connect to VPN through a proxy?

So - which "relatively inexpensive" [ < $200] Proxy Server software packages support IPSEC for my wife's SOHO?
-  so far, I've evaled a lot of PSs, and only Winroute PRO purports to support IPSEC.  However, it won't work with my Nortel Enternet client.
-  any suggestions would be appreciated.
