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).

Based on:
http://mail.nessus.org/pipermail/nessus/2005-August/msg00194.html

the Cenzic port seems like it is severly limited in terms of which plugins it can legally
run.
