Changed the external IP on a secureplatform FW (NGX R65). After the change clients cannot connect to vpn. I thought they could connect to another site, and get the updated IP through a policy update. VPN does work when a site is manually created. Is there any way to update the clients without manually creating a new site on all of them?

Hi there,

In short, no.

The "easiest" way if you don't want to go through making a new site manually on each laptop would be to take the userc.C file from a working installation and distribute this via group policy to the machines in question but it's a bit dirty and would require the clients to log in on the main domain ..

Recreating the sites is definitely the best option here, sorry.

Hi Grimkin,
   Thanks for your comment. What do you mean they would have to login on the main domain?
Thanks

Hi,

I just meant that if you wanted to deploy some kind of change via Group Policy then the clients would all have to log into the domain to allow the GP to apply,
