Sonicwall VPN Global client reports connected but cannot get IP address from remote network.
A user can connect to the office VPN (have sonicwall TZ170) but cannot get an IP address. (therefore if you ping any IP address on the remote network it fails)
the log shows Failed to receive an incoming ISAKMP packet. The length is incorrect.
All other users can connect to the office fine as can I with this particular users credentials.
This problem user uses the Global VPN client to connect to the office. This reports Connected as normal and seems fine. However the user does not seem to get an IP address from the remote network.
when I check the SonicWall VPN adaptor under the Windows XP Network connecions I noticed it is disabled. If I try enable it.
Enabling& and then soon after Connection Failed.
I check the Sonicwall log and it repeatedly has this error.
Failed to receive an incoming ISAKMP packet. The length is incorrect.
Now I have previously had issued with VPN and changing the MTU size resolved it. This users current MTU is 1462. I think before I changed it to 1500 and this fixed it. I dont want to change the MTU size now as Im worried this will kick the user out from his broadband connection and he wont be able to reconnect to his router as he does not have an Ethernet cable. I do not want to bring down his internet over the weekend as then I would have made things worse.
I also note the user is on an unencrypted wireless connection and even his router has the default password set. I dont think this could be anything to do with it but thought I would mention it.
