ZyWall 5 and ISA server

Hi All,

I want to add a ISA server to our network to control my users access to the internet and to secure our network against intruders.
That is working ok.

The tricky part is that we also have some remote offices which connect to the main office through IPSec VPN.

Today we have a ZyWall 35 in the main office and a ZyWall 5 in the branch offices. The ZyWall 5 is then establishing the IPSec VPN connection to the ZyWall 35.

All our LAN users in the main office is behind the ZyWall 35, and using this as the gateway.

We want to change the gateway for our office users to the ISA server, and still be able to connect to the users behind the VPN in the branch office.

How can we transform our current network setup into a working setup using a ISA in main office and the ZyWall 5 in branch offices as VPN Clients and if necessary the ZyWall 35 in main office?

Today working network:
Main office:
LAN Network: 192.168.1.0/255.255.240.0
ZyWall 35 LAN IP: 192.168.1.1
ZyWall 35 WAN IP: 80.x.x.20

Branch Office:
LAN Network: 192.168.51.0/255.255.240.0
ZyWall 5 LAN IP: 192.168.51.1

I hope I make myself clear, and your are able to give me a solution. If I am unclear in some parts please ask me for more information.

Hi All,

I have found out of some things on my own:

- According to Zyxel support it is not possible to connect a ZyWall to a ISA Server VPN.
- It is not possible either to have a ZyWall behind the ISA, operating in Router or bridge mode, the ZyWall need to have its own link to the internet.

We solved the issue by adding the ZyWall to the internet too, give it an externally IP address, and then add some route tables to the ISA server to route all VPN-traffic correct. (since all equipment has the ISA server as primary gateway)

Overview Often, we set up VPN appliances where the connected clients are on a separate subnet and the company will have alternate internet connections and do not use this particular device as the gateway for certain servers or clients. In this case…
