Now for the question.  Does anyone know of a scanning tool that runs on
windows (Due to the different VPN clients used) other then NeWT.  I
don't have $7000 plus the $1200 a year in my budget for one scanning
tool.

Nessus was recently ported to the Win32 platform by Cenzic
(http://www.cenzic.com/nessusport.html). Not super-stable yet, but you
can work around the issues (NessusD needs to be restarted between each
scan).

I blogged about it at
http://proxy.11a.nu/2005/08/16/cenzic-releases-windows-nt-port-of-nessus-vulnerability-scanner/,
and you can download the Win32 binaries (without filling in any
registration and what not) from
