PPTP VPN Connections with Win2k3 domain controller and Symantec Gateway Security 360
Posted on 2005-03-24
After a week of trying different RARS settings, firewall settings, and generally pulling my hair out, I'm at my wits end on this one. Here's the short and skinny. We're a small business network, approx. 20 client workstations, running a win2k3 server domain controller. We're using a Symantec Gateway 360 firewall. According to the firewall vpn settings, the connections "should" work. However, Microsoft's VPN client can't get past phase 1 of the authentication. After talking with Symantec, they say Microsoft isn't IPSec compliant. (Not sure if this is true, or a sales pitch to push thier VPN client). I've tried using my 2nd NIC card. (btw, on a supermicro 1U server, 1000mb card), bypassing the firewall, using Routing and Remote Access settings. (however that causes a conflict with my gateway settings) Does anyone know a secure work-around, so I can use MS VPN client with this firewall appliance. My next step is either returning the firewall to symantec and getting a cisco firewall, or just sell the thing on EBay and get the cisco one.
