I have a cisco FTD 1010 and am trying to build a site to site vpn.  I can get the vpn tunnel up, but am unable to pass traffic over the VPN tunnel.

I have a Cisco FTD 1010 configured with a site-to-site VPN.  I can get the tunnel to come up, but cannot seem to pass any traffic over the tunnel.

When connecting to the VPN, and I am on a Microsoft Teams call, the call is disconnected briefly, but I recently notice that the call is no longer disconnected when I connect and disconnect from the VPN, why?
Why does Microsoft Teams no longer drop a call, when connecting to the VPN during conversion with Microsoft Teams?

New to MacBook.  I have a user we just hired into the company who requested a Mac, and we are a Windows shop.  I've been successful with installing some of our apps into it, but having a challenge with 2 things:

1) Cannot get it to join our domain

2) Cannot get Cisco AnyConnect to open after installing it successfully


If anyone can help me one or both of these items, it would be much appreciated.

With the domain join, it keeps giving me an error 5502 and says the join failed.  

With the Cisco VPN, it tells me "No components loaded" and then won't open.  On w Windows PC, it opens a config screen and lets me configure the connection - Mac does not do this at all. This is a brand new MacBook Pro, btw.  


Thanks for your help.

Mapped drives for VPN clients from computers not joined to the domain.

I am wondering how others handle this situation.     When connecting to VPN on a computer that is domain joined we can map our network drives for our users and this works fine.

However for non domain joined computers connecting the drives prompts for password since it tries local windows credentials.

Is it even possible to map drives from a VPN Client and use the VPN client credentials for example which are domain credentials?

Or are there other ways to handle this?

A limit of four simultaneous VPN connections was reported by my client.  I found they had overlooked the need to renewed licensing for AnyConnect.  The license key must be applied to the Cisco ASA 5505 and I have priv. level 15 credentials but cannot physically get to the server room due to the quarantine.  I can connect to a local management PC via RDP and utilize ASDM successfully.  Cisco
Adaptive Security Appliance Software Version 9.8(2)
Firepower Extensible Operating System Version 2.2(2.52)
Device Manager Version 7.8(2)
Question 1:  Aside from using a console cable, what other methods may I utilize to install the AnyConnect license on the ASA? My searches have all led back to VPN implementation instruction and the console cable method regardless of my attempts to make these results an ill fit through variations of the question.  I am grateful for any enlightenment.

Does anyone have any experience with pushing the server paths to the Cisco Anyconnect client? We are moving our gateways around and I cannot find anything online regarding Cisco admx files or the settings that I'm looking for.

Many thanks!

I'll keep it as short as possible.

Main Site - SonicWall TZ300 Firewall - Licensed for SSL VPN usage
Branch Site - SonicWall TZ300 Firewall

Site-to-site VPN tunnel set up and functioning correctly.

Via SSL-VPN Clients (NetExtender or Mobile Connect): Can access resources at both locations with no issues.
Via SSL-VPN Virtual Office (vpn.domainname.com): Can only access resources at main site. When we try to connect to anything at the branch site, it just hangs and says that it can't reach the server.

Issue is that we need staff to be able to access an RDS server located in the branch site via Virtual Office RDP bookmark. We previously had an older TZ210 firewall at the main site and we could access resources at both location via any VPN method including Virtual Office RDP bookmarks. I exported the config from the TZ21`0 and imported it to the TZ300 so I had to do minimal config (mainly just importing and applying the SSL-VPN SSL cert in to the TZ300).

I reached out to SonicWall support and got someone that did not convince me with his response. After capturing packets and looking at some other items, he said that "Virtual Office does not work over site-to-site VPN" and simply said that if it worked with the TZ210, it's unsupported.

I find that hard to believe and was wondering if anyone has ever run in to anything similar or is familiar with SonicWalls at all to assist. Thank you in advance!

Does anyone by chance have a step by step install documentation created for a Cisco ASA 5508 for anyconnect?  We had a firewall die and installed this one as new.   They were IPSEC now on SSL.  We need to deploy anyconnect to everyone and just need to tweak the document to fit our clients config.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.   No one can tunnel in without setting this up.   This is pretty high priority.

Hi

I am trying to help someone who has access to their office via a VPN connection. Even though they stay connected the drives keep disappearing in Windows explorer.

What might cause this?

Mobile VPN to Cisco ASA 55xx-
I'm not as Cisco user until recently and I have a question that I think a Cisco admin can answer- Where do I configure the policies for accessing local LAN resources via mobile device connected to the ASA 55xx VPN ?  Any help would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks!

Hi, I have a Cisco RV340, I enabled the PPTP server like I have with the old RV042's setup the users and passwords and from the client I get the following error.

The remote connection was denied because the user name and password combination you provided is not recognized or the selected authentication protocol is not permitted on the remote access server

I have checked MSChap v2 and all.

Thanks all.

I have a customer who has a TP-Link Archer C1200 router - which does not appear to support Port Forwarding.  I'm trying to set up Remote Desktop so that they can work from home.  The C1200 router does support OpenVPN.  I set up and was successfully able to connect from my office in IL to their office in MI via the OpenVPN client using the Certificate that their router software created.  Now that I am "connected" I have tried to connect directly to the server - which has an internal IP address inside their LAN of 192.168.1.145.  The VPN connection has assigned my computer inside my office as 10.8.0.6.  When I use the Windows 10 Remote Desktop Connection software with the 192.168.1.145 address - I'm getting the standard "Remote Desktop Cannot Connect" for one of the following three reasons message.  I am sure that I'm missing a couple of steps.  Please offer any and all suggestions!  Thank you in advance for your time!

I have a remote user who I need to add his domain loigin to the local administrators group. I connected via VPN using my credentials but each time I try to add his user, the domain could not be contacted. What do I need to do to allow me to connect him to the domain and then add his user to the admin group on the computer....or even user group so he can login with that domain login?

A small challenge has come with the Coronapocolypse.  

Everyone is working from home.  We have good connectivity and between a solid VPN, Slack, Hangouts and gotomeeting I figured everything would be covered, but we all know how the rest of that story goes.

The challenge is the Operations group has weekly training where they used to all take a lunch in the conference room and participate in an online training class.  

Now that we are all out of the office, we still want to share the class, hopefully through an online meeting.  The problem we encounter is that while the video is shared to all participants, the audio portion is not.  All the PCs involved have the Stereo Mix icon in the recording devices, and it is enabled.  The box is checked to listen to this device, the level has been adjusted up.

Ideas?

I have a weird issue with my AD. We have a mix of 2008R2 and 2016 AD servers. We have a global security group for VPN users. If you are not part of that group VPN access is denied. For some reason users get removed from that global security group. It is different users effected. I checked my default domain policy and there are no restricted access. What could cause this behavior?

I run Untangle as a NGFW and have the OpenVPN component on it.  I also set up a client on it for my iPhone 7 and have OpenVPN on that as well.  
Downloaded the files from UT's OpenVPN to my laptop.  How do I get the files from there to the iPhone and configured?

Thanks!

Good day all! I am trying to figure out why a work at home user has access to all internet sites but not our VPN sites, which normally everyone has access to. If they go back to the office those sites open up fine. Once off the corporate network they no longer can access them, they get page cannot be displayed. I just gave the user a loaner laptop and that works fine off the network and they can access the VPN sites and VPN.

I have a customer that is going to 300Mbps internet soon. Needs a router that will keep up with it. Don't need wireless, VPN. Content Filtering or any bells and whistles. Just a good, solid internet router.

I would like to VPN into my company's Windows 2016 Server (just like my co-workers do), so that I can access documents while working on my Windows 10 laptop from home.  .  The office IT person has provided the VPN IP address that I need to connect to the Server.  I just need to set up a connection to the Server.

I have Spectrum internet in my home, which as a Sagemcom RAC2V1S router connected to a Spectrum cable modem.

My question is:  What ports do I have to enable/disable on my home router / firewall, in order to gain access to the Windows 2016 Server?

I have a PPTP VPN setup on Windows Server 2012 R2 STD.
How many VPN connections will I be able to run concurrently?

Hi all can someone show me where I can confirm for sure how many concurrent licenses a Cyberoam CR25iNG - 10.6.6 MR-2 firewall can hold?  I found the licensing and it doesn't tell me squat.  If I click on system then maintenance and licensing it gives me the model CR25iNG (C06615145344-9YTFZU).  If I click synchronize it syncs however does not show how many licenses there are.   If I add a user to the VPN it lets me but doesn't tell me what the concurrent limit is at.   Any help is appreciated.

Hi Experts,

I am planning to install MS RAS server on W2019 server.  I have several questions:

1. What is maximum users to login VPN sessions at the same time?
2. Could you please let us know which article is the best for us to follow?  
3. Is PPTP (Point to Point) secure enough or we have to use SSTP?

Thanks,

Ted

Hi

My FortiGate WAN is at 192.168.3.10 - this port is connected to my router which has public IP and LAN IP - 192.168.3.1...

I set DMZ on the router to 192.168.3.10.

I'm stuck on the configuration  -
SSL-VPN Settings - Listen on Port - set to 10444forti.pngand I get  :
Web mode access will be listening at
https://192.168.3.10:10444

but it doesn't show my public IP... as I see in tutorials ...
and for that reason, I can't get to my portal from other networks..
What am I missing?
