Hi experts,
we have setup an Cisco 881 an it works fine. Our problem is, if you try to build up a vpn-connection with a vodafone 3g card, the vpn-connection is established but you cannot ping our local network. I think it must be a problem with ipsec over UDP because Vodafone is doing IPSec over an adress translation. Has anyone solved the problem?

Hi,

In this case you need to enable NAT-T on vpn concentrator!

Best regards,

just to be clear....you are trying to connect to the 881 remotely via the Cisco VPN client using a cellular connection on the host PC?

Hi, Thank you for your quick answers..

@Rick_at_ptscinti:
Yes, thats´s the case. If we connect whithout using the 3G-network it works fine.

@ikalmar:

Do you have a workaround to enable NAT-T on Cisco 881?
Isakmp nat-traversal 20 isn´t a valid command for this router.

try it:

crypto ipsec nat-transparency udp-encapsulation

But in this case you need to enable it on the central SITE!

Hello,

i debug, but there are no error messages. The connection is established, the VPN Client has got the IP-address 16.16.16.4, mask 255.255.255.0 and default gateway 16.16.16.1, but the local network 192.168.20.0 is not responding by ping.
The VPN works fine whithout using Vodafone as ISP.

Hello @All:

The problem is fixed!!!

It is caused by NDIS6.2 interface for WWAN, in this case Windows 7 32-bit  OS and Cisco VPN-Client 5.0. You will find the fix at: http://www.citrix.com/lang/English/lp/lp_1680845.asp

Thank you for quick and kindly support.

Best Regards
