So you need to know how to configure Symantec 360?

Luckily it became much much easier in 360 than it was on 200. Unfortunately this is from memory.

Log in to the Symantec VPN web interface and I think you go to the VPN section. I think the subtab is "Client IDs" or "Client Identities" Here you need to create a preshare key and a client phase 1 ID. Make sure to enable it also.

One of the other subtabs has a checkbox at the top called "Enable VPN WAN" - you'll check this one. The other says Enable VPN WLAN/LAN" this one you DO NOT check.

That should be all you need on the router side.

On the Client 9.0 side you create a new connection.

-Enter the external IP address of the  router
-Check "Download VPN Policy"
-Enter the Preshare Key
-Enter the Client Phase 1 ID
-On the next tab over enter the same external IP address for the router.
-You will see STRONG greyed out - this is fine and normal as you are downloading the VPN policy.
-Tunnels will be blank - also fine as you are downloading the VPN policy.

The reason these are greyed out and are downloading the VPN policy is when Symantec redesigned the 360 from the 200s they now come preconfigured with a policy in place. So all you do on the router side is set phase 1 ID, a preshare key and turn the VPN on.

Easy :D

Unfortunately we both know that Symantec documentation isnt always the easiest to follow.

is there any setting from the ADSL router side? ... i disabled the firewall inside the D-Link ADSL router, but there's some setting for DynDns and port forwarding.!!

I'd just use the DynDNS on the Symantec. Keep it all in one place.
