Cannot access LAN on connected Watchguard x550e IPSec VPN

Hi all,

I have a Watchguard x550e running Fireware 10.2 and i've setup a Mobile IP Sec VPN for people to connect through into one of our servers. I have setup the configuration on the Firewall and installed the clientside software successfully and managed to get a "Connected" on the VPN which I can see on the Firewall activity monitor.

The problem I have is that no packets are being sent or received on the VPN and I cant get any sort of connection into the LAN or from the LAN to the remote device. I imagine its a setting somewhere or an adjustment to a policy that I cannot find, please help!

Thanks

Do you have a rule to allow VPN users access to the LAN?

I have tried to play around with different rules to allow VPN access to the LAN without any luck, I've since removed them all and gone back to the original configuration. Can you help with setting up the correct rule to allow access?

Thanks

Add all the users to the PPTP-Users group and then add a rule as below

I can see the PPTP VPN settings but as we're using an IP Sec VPN we do not have the PPTP Users group?

We decided to use PPTP rather then IPSec and its all working fine with the configuration settings as above. Thanks for your help on that!
