Can't connect Sonicwall VPN from WinXP2 machine
Posted on 2006-06-04
I have Sonicwall TZ firewall setup with VPN access. I can access the VPN from all machines except from 2 brand Dell new laptops just added to the domain. The laptops are running Windows XP Pro SP2. The network is a SBS 2003. When I attempt to connect to the VPN, I get prompted for my username and password but it can never connect. It says that IKA packets have been blocked in the Sonicwall log. I have disabled my McAfee ASAP firewall for the client machines and attempted to disable the Windows XP firewall but the options to turn it off are greyed out. After removing the machine from the domain, I can disable the Win firewall but it still can not connect. Readding the machine to the domain renables the firewall and greys out the options again. Does the sonicwall require its clients to be a member of the domain? Anyone have any suggestions why the machine would not connect to the VPN?
