I am trying to configure a Juniper SSG20 Firewall VPN to allow users to remotely login to the office from home. I set up the configuration based on the L2TP Configuration w/o IPSEC document  Juniper provides but still unable to successfully establish VPN connectivity. Do I have to have an authentication server or can the firewall be used to authenticate with the windows vpn client?

From my past experience with Juniper's, you have to either have a domain controller setup for the authentication or you use local users that are setup in the config.  Not sure you can get away with the firewall since its not really terminating the connections.

What document can I follow to configure the local users on the firewall so they can login and have access to the LAN.

I was reading through those links and they all seem to indicate a need for an authentication device, I didn't see any material on setting up users on the FW and the VPN connection will allow them in. I did read where you can set up the device with users and IKE though I would still need an authentication server of some type. Am I correct on this or am I missing something?

You should be able to create accounts, just not that familiar with this model as I am with others.  Do you happen to have support on this device?

I have no support on the device as the support contract expired.

Tks for your help as I configured the FW correctly iaw the Juniper L2TP w/o IPSEC configuration. I had to play with the Windows 7 VPN Client settings and was able to successfully connect.
