VPN: Add Win7/Vista SSTP support for SSL VPN

Windows Vista and Windows 7 have built in SSTP VPN. If Astaro would support that feature, you could use VPN without installing an additional vpn client

        Since we have deployed SSTP with TMG, our workers can use VPN nearly everywhere - especially in hotels and foreign offices. No need for any NAT Traversal/UDP ports, just https 443... great!
        Unfortunately UTM has no SSTP/VPN support yet. This is one of the two show stoppers for our migration (the other is nissing windows auth in WAF).
        Of course this is true for win8/8.1 as well...

        With SSTP support, we don't need rollout an additional Client :)

        When customer looking to replace a TMG, they also asking about SSTP - as a native for Windows.

        Isn't this not in because of the Microsoft patents and licensing?

        I would love this to be in, but it may increase the UTM price if it is so.

        Since Win 7 is deployed widely and provides the majority of clients/workstation using an UTM it would be worth lowering the oddities for client-side deployment!

        Yeah, please! This would resolve the issues on Vista/Windows 7 with User Account Control activated, too, since there is no need for any (currently) unsigned application to install and tweak on file system permissions.
