WatchGuard MUVPN works only with WatchGuard devices AFAIK. Forwarding IPSec to SBS doesn't  help hence. All FireBox devices allow for PPTP, too. And googling for MUVPN did bring me a lot of documentation about it, e.g. the one for SOHO6, which  shows me the router configuration is easy.

I'm no WatchGuardian, but if you tell more details about the problem and what you tried, other experts may jump in and help.

What are you trying to forward from the WatchGuard to the SBS server? You should not need to do this - once you create a successful VPN connection your device will be on the network and you can connect to the server just like you would if you were physically connected to the LAN (rd, tcp, http, smtp, etc).

What model is your WatchGuard? Have you downloaded the MUVPN client from http://www.watchguard.com/support and installed on your laptop? Do you have WatchGuard System Manager installed on a PC within your network to talk to and configure the WatchGuard with? Have you Configured the VPN subnet in WG System Manager?

Please let me know and I can further assist.

In my WG, everything has been configured properly for VPN connection.

Ok - did you generate the WGX file from the VPN setup section of System Manager and then import that into your MUVPN client on the laptop?

Can you post few sanitized logs from the client/Edge which would help understand where the problem is.

Thank you.

Port forwarding definitions for IPSec might interfere with the WG internal IPSec management. Drop them.
