Sonicwall SOHO3 VPN Problems
Posted on 2004-03-23
I've tried posting this once to no avail...here goes again!
I have a SOHO3 with 10 Global VPN licenses; firmware is 6.5.04; using Global VPN Client 2.0. I need to set up a VPN for remote users to access Intranet, Terminal Services, etc. Because we are running Windows Server 2003 DHCP services, I would like to have the IP address assigned by the server, not the SonicWall. Under DHCP over VPN, the SonicWall is set as a Central Gateway and "send DHCP requests to the server listed below" is configured to point at the W2K3 box. In the VPN settings under client settings, I have selected "Use DHCP to obtain Virtual IP for this Connection."
Here's my problem - I can connect to the firewall using the VPN client, but I cannot ping any internal addresses. When I go to the Virtual IP settings, it has not received an IP from the DHCP server, and renewing eventually times out. The Group VPN connection is reporting that packets have been sent and received, but I cannot (obviously) connect to internal addresses. When I enable logging, I get the following message: "Failed to renew the IP address for the virtual interface. The semaphore timeout period has expired."
Anyone have any ideas? This is extremely urgent, so I'm awarding 500 points to the first person to get me an up-and-running VPN!
