FSV318 + NATted VPN Clinet
Posted on 2004-10-15
Hi, I'm having trouble setting up Netgear ProSafe client <-> FVS318 connection.
When the client has a global ip address, VPN gets established and my life is great.
It starts causing when I try to VPN in from Natted condition.
VPN gets connected, (checked through client monitor, and the FVS318 also says it's connected) but
I can't access any of the private network resource.
Here's the situation
XP Client (sp1) -- > W2k3 router (dynamic ip) --> INTERNET --> FVS318 (static ip)
XP Client: 192.168.1.25
W2k3 router: 192.168.1.1, 24.198.x.x (dynamic)
FVS318: 24.245.x.x (static), 192.168.0.1 (internal)
VPN connection is established properly because I've mapped the ports needed. (4500, 50 so on)
But, when I try to ping 192.168.0.x, time out occurs.
Also I noticed that no ESP packets are being forwarded, causing no encrypted packets from FVS318 side to reach the client. (checked w/ ethereal)
Basically, I want to be able to use to VPN client under any condition. (i.e. Hotel w/ private ip conenciton, airport, home)
Some research on the web gave me an insight of nat-t, but i couldn't quite figure out if it is applicable in this situation.
I'm stack on this issue for past 5hrs and any help is very much welcomed.
