Windows VPN client and netscreen 5gt

I have a netscreen 5gt and only one public IP. I tried allowing PPTP through to a windows 2003 server but I keep getting an error 20209 on the server saying that GRE packets are not getting through. I think what I'd rather do anyway is have the windows VPN client dial directly into the Netscreen. Does anyone have a link to show me how to configure this?

For your original problem, do you have proper policies which allows this ?

You need to set a policy which allows GRE and PPTP ports to be allowed, is this done already ?

Cheers,

You can allow the VPN client through to the 2k server, just adjust your policy to allow GRE. Or you could do away with the client, and use the NS to the 2k3 server.

I actually found the gre solution on junipers website:

http://kb.juniper.net/CUSTOMERSERVICE/index?page=kbdetail&record_id=0244022611e8310108012c3c1905d48



I still would like to be able to set it up so I can VPN directly into the netscreen without having to load the Netscreen software on the client machines. I know how to do it with a cisco Pix so I would imagine it is possible in a netscreen if I knew how to set it up.

I think pointing the user to the KB was what he needed. As after that he never responded.
