Cisco Concentrator/ Corporate VPN
Posted on 2006-05-12
We have a Cisco 3080 concentrator at our corporate site and we would like to set it up to allow VPN connections from several of our remote sites but I am having some problems getting it working. At the remote site, I have a Linksys WRV54G VPN broadband router and I want to use IPSEC to secure the traffic. At headquarters, we have a CheckPoint firewall but the way I have the concentrator hooked up, it is bypassing it. I have the public port plugged into my internet switch and the private port plugged into my local LAN. When I configure each device to utilize IPSEC, all I see is the following message over and over in the concentrator’s logs:
127 05/12/2006 09:23:46.750 SEV=4 IKE/48 RPT=14 xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
Error processing payload: Payload ID: 1
Reading through the documentation on the Linksys box, I get the impression that some special configuration is required on each of the PC's located at the remote sites, behind the Linksys box, but this doesn’t seem right to me. I thought that the necessary tunnel was established in the Linksys router and then the PC's just find their way to the private LAN on their own. Is this correct, or am I mistaken?
If anyone can provide a little push in the right direction, I would appreciate it.
