vpn connection error
Posted on 2006-05-04
I'm troubleshooting a connection failure using checkpoint vpn client. I'm using XP and installed the client and am getting a connection failure.
To give a little background. Initially, I was going thru a linksys router, with IPSEC enabled. I didn't work. Then I tried a DLINK with IPSEC enabled. It didn't work. So, I took the router out of the equation and connected my DSL modem directly to my PC, established a PPPoE connection to the Intranet...no problem. Again, tried to establish a connection using the VPN client...connection failed. The VPN client has been tested on other PC's running XP and it works no problem. I'm using the same version. The problem seems to point to my ISP, so I called them. I thought there might be some port blocking or added security on their end that doesn't allow checkpoint vpn through their firewall. They informed me that there was nothing on their end to prevent me from connecting. Ports were open, the DSL modem I was using was a bridge or non-bridged modem (can't remember), but basically the modem wouldn't have anything that would cause me not to be able to connect. So, I'm stumped? I don't know what else to try?
Has anyone had any suggestions? I still think this is something to do with my ISP, but have nothing to come back with to say hey, could it possibly be this?
Any help with this would be greatly appreciated. I'm not sure what to try next?
