comment Scan to PDF software for Windows?
If you need that feature, yes, then that cost is valid. I never felt like I need that (as a private, home user).

comment Does Windows 7 64 bits work ok?
@bk1e: good point, yes! There was no WinXP mode on Vista64, so I never was able to use Cisco VPN

The Acer easyStore NAS seem to be available - but that doesn't seem to be the WHS server you mentioned - unfortunately! Thanks for your thoughts - wish I could have accepted all the good answers!

comment Make Firefox automagically pick up default internet proxy?
Nope that doesn't seem to work. I just dialled into the VPN, and while MS IE picks up the new proxy automatically from the registry, Firefox still fails to connect to www.google.com, even after I've set this "auto-detect settings" option :-(

not even sure if it's a policy per se - I just noticed that when I'm dialed up to their VPN, trying to connect to any site requires using their proxy - all other communication appears to stop.

which ones in particular? I had a bad experience with the Synology support in their early days, which kinda keeps me away from their products these days.....

Would that be a TS-409 or a TS-439 ?

Yes, I have to - when I'm connected to their VPN, ALL traffic MUST go through their proxy - they won't allow anything else :-(
