Cisco VPN reason 429

Using Cisco VPN client 5.0.04.0300 I get error 429 unable to resolve server address while trying to connect to remote end point. From the same client I have two other end points configured that both work with no problems All three end points are Cisco 1811 routers I'm using static IP address in the VPN client host field not host name. I can ping the address and connect using SDM.The VPN config is a copy of one of the other configs that is working. The VPN config test ok on the router but it does not apear that I'm hitting the router. Attached is the end point I'm trying to connect to. I'm on a Time Warner cable connetion and the end point is windstream DSL

Hi,

Are you using the hostname or IP address of the VPN router. It sounds like you may be using a hostname in your vpn client config and the dns on the client isn't resolving to an IP address. Try using the IP address instead.

Sorry, I didn't read your question properly I see your already using the ip address.

No I'm using the static IP address of the remote end point in the VPN client config. I can ping the end point by this address as well as access it via SDM.

Is there a firewall on your pc which is preventing the connection?

Are you using transparent tunnelling and  ipsec over udp (NAT/PAT)?

CdwalterAuthor Commented:
I don't think its a firewall issue since two other connectiosn work I have an 1811 router on this end also but I'm not stopping any outgoing traffic. Yes I'm using IPSEC over udp NAT/PAT

I can't put my finger on the problem... but why do you have vlan100 created? it doesn't appear to be "in use" on any interface...

and for that matter... why are you creating vlan 1 for the implicit inclusion on FA1 ?

asdlkfCommented:
um...

is "99.99..99.99" a typo?

: " . .. . "
: "   ..   " ?

How are the other VPN connections configured - are they using the same transport, transparent tunnelling enabled etc?

IPSec wont work behind nat.


Try GRE-encapsulating your IPSec packets first.

no I changed the ip address to a dummy for security reasons. The other two conenctions are set up the same way one uses host name and the other uses static IP and they both work like the one that does not work. All three use IPSEC\UDP
