Hi All,

I have a puzzling problem, we have:

A DMZ (10.1.8.1)
A Public Internal network (10.1.10.1)
A Private Internal network (10.1.9.1)
A sister site's network (10.1.4.1) This network is at the other end of a 100Mb LES Link

At either side of the LES link is an Avaya Layer 3 switch, (10.1.10.254) on the public internal network and (10.1.4.1) at the sister site's network.

In between the two layer 3 switches on the LES link we have a 10.1.5.1 network

Now, I have opened up rules on the FW to allow data to pass between 10.1.8.5 & 10.1.4.20

I can ping 10.1.8.5 from 10.1.4.20 and see the following tracert:

Hop 1 : 10.1.4.1 (default gateway - on Layer 3 switch at sister site)
Hop 2 : 10.1.5.2 (our side of the internal LES 100 link - on Layer 3 switch at our site)
Hop 3: 10.1.10.1 (internal public firewall interface at our site)
Hop 4 : 10.1.8.5 (destination machine on DMZ)

However, when I try to send a tracert the other way, I get

Hop 1 : 10.1.8.1 (DMZ firewall interface)
Hop 2 : 10.1.10.254 (our side of the Layer 3 switch at our site)
Hop 3 : *     *    *  Request Timed out

It IS POSSIBLE to contact the 10.1.4.0/24 site from the 10.1.9.0/24 & 10.1.10.0/24 networks, just not from the 10.1.8.0/24 networks!

I'm at the end of my tether with this now, please can someone help me!

Thanks
Andy

Do you see the ping or other traffic in your SmartView Tracker logs.  You should see encrypts going out and Decrypts coming in.

Run a TCP Dump and determine if you have ESP packets leaving your GW when you ping out.
How are they addressed, Do you have NAT enabled in any way?
