Hi,
I have a Fortigate unit at our office and have created an Ipsec VPN and policy. At one of our sites there is an XP machine and the other is a 2003 SBS server.There are two NICs in the server, one for internet and one for a POS subnet.  On the XP machine I connect the VPN,
(using the forti client VPN client)  no problem, I can ping the DC or others on the (office) network.  When I attempt the same on the server, the VPN connects but there is no traffic being recieved.  I can only assume that it has something to do with the server, as the xp machine is complient and just works.  I have diabled windows firewall on the server cant figure out what is stopping the traffic :-/

Thanks in advance.

You are going to bump heads with the Asynchonous Routing Issue.

By adding the VPN you have created a multi-segment network,...the fact that it is a VPN/WAN instead of another LAN segment in the same room is irrelevant.  Hence you have a mutli-segment LAN without a central LAN Router to make the routing decisions.

Since the SBS is dual homed that would imply you are using it as a Firewall.  What is running on the SBS to act as the Firewall (RRAS-NAT?,...ISA2004?)
