Allowing VPN Pass Through in a Nortel VPN/FireWall Connectivity Device
Posted on 2005-04-15
I use two types of VPN Clients, Microsoft VPN and Checkpoint VPN to access external sites. Both of these connections work from one of my networks, lets call it OFFICE1, which uses SmoothWall FireWall.
When I try to use the Microsoft VPN from the network OFFICE2, which uses Nortel VPN/FireWall Connectivity 1050, it does not work, but the Checkpoint VPN does. So, the problem has to be with the Nortel Device. I'm am a little familiar with the Nortel Device, but not sure how to allow the MS VPN connection going outbound.
There aren't any outbound Filters set up (that I know of), and I have 3 VPN Tunnels set up with offsite companies. Is there some option I have to turn on that allows VPN Pass Through? (The Nortel Device has Software Version V04_80.124) It's my understanding that MS VPN uses LT2P/IPsec. I'm not sure what Checkpoint uses.
To clarify, the VPN Client Connections have nothing to do with the VPN Tunnels, and the Tunnels may be unimportant information. This may or may not be an easy question, but I have employees waiting to work from OFFICE2 that need to use the MS VPN Client.
Thanks for your help in advanced.
