Client is looking to have 3 separate locations connect to FileMaker databases.  Sometimes 2 users will want to access the same file.

Can they set up FileMaker Pro on a Virtual Private Server and use that copy to serve files?   What is the limit of open files for non-server FileMaker at the moment?
IF they purchased FileMaker Server, would that work?

Could they remotely run FileMaker on a VPS?

Is there a way to do this?

Thanks.

IoT Devices - Fast, Cheap or Secure…Pick Two

The IoT market is growing at a rapid pace and manufacturers are under pressure to quickly provide new products. Can you be sure that your devices do what they're supposed to do, while still being secure?

We were issued a new modem by our ISP = ARRIS NVG443B.  Since then our remote office could not VPN into us.  I thought maybe our static IP had changed and ISP failed to tell us.  They say not - that our static IP is still the same.  I logged into new router and saw WAN IP as one number and what was our old IP down on the DHCP/LAN page listed as PRIVATE.  If we use the WAN IP in the VPN connect, it works and we get fully connected.  If we use our old static IP it always fails.  The ISP says that every time we VPN in using the WAN IP, it disconnects wireless service at the site.  That we should not be using the WAN IP....  I'm at a loss.  Anyone know how to properly configure the modem for VPN access?  Thanks in advance.

Hello:

i would like to export the settings from the Cisco RV120W firewall and then import them into a new Cisco RV130W Wireless-N Multifunction VPN Router.

Can this be done  and if so, can someone forward any instructions or links.

Thanks

Hi all,

We have a setup, where all computers are connected to the Head Office WSUS server so that we have a better visibility of all computers and we control which updates need to be downloaded.

Some of the computers are at our remote sites (connected via VPN) and we would like to reduce the bandwidth. Thus, we were thinking of having a physical server at our remote site which downloads the updates that we at the Head Office authorise and the clients download from the local WSUS site server.

The administrator still needs to control everything from the Head Office and authorise updates from 1 location (HO).

Thanks.

We have a Cisco RV320 dual wan vpn router. The first static public ip assigned to WAN1 let's say is a.a.a.a and WAN2 is b.b.b.b.  Each is from different ISP's have been tested by them and by me to be operational.  We have a site to site VPN in place using the ip a.a.a.a and the Cisco is in basic failover mode with WAN1 being the primary. The VPN is connected and operational.  The issue is this:

I want to use WAN2 for the vpn connection because it is much faster but when I switch the Primary WAN to WAN2 and change the tunnel to use WAN2 and change the peer address on the other site to point to the public ip on WAN2, the remote site does not connect to WAN2, I can't even ping it.

any help would be appreciated.

PS. I know the WAN2 address does indeed work because if I temporarily install another cheap router for testing and assign it that address, I can ping it no problem.

I have an Advanced Tomato Router with 2 WAN connections.
I want both WAN connections to be active, but only 1 of them to use the VPN (in and out).
Currently it seems to be a bit random as to which WAN the VPN connects through....

I assume it requires some custom IP stable scripts, but im not sure what to use....

Any advise would be great!

Thanks

I am new to  ASA firewall concept, I would like to know that  ASA firwall works  based on interface name or IP address, for an example if the traffic comes from outside(internet), and if we want all traffic to (inside) office network, do we need to say any IP address within specific range goes to inside interface ?  For an example how do we allow VPN traffic through firewall?

Dear Experts,

I have a user which started to have an issue with opening ppt files this week over vpn.
The strange thing is it's only happening with ppt files, pptx are opening fine.
If I copy the ppt file from the Shared drive to the desktop it takes 3-4 Seconds to copy and around 10 seconds to open.
If I open the same ppt file directly from a network share it takes around 3-4 Minutes to open or Powerpoint is even crashing.
The same files are opening fast when on the Office network.
I'm running out of ideas what could be the issue.
I tried the following until now:

- repair office
- Adjust MTU of the Wifi adapter
- start Powerpoint in safe mode
- disable all Add-ins
- Add network share in the trust center to trusted locations (including subfolders)

It's still the same after all this.

the following is used:
- Windows 7 64 Bit
- Office 2013
- Cisco Anyconnect

Best Regards and many thanks in advance for any input,

Patrick

I have a client application that connects to a SQL Server through a Fortigate FW VPN Tunnel at a remote office. The users can connect to the server/database with no problem, but if they leave the application for anywhere between 20 mins to an hour, the connection will timeout and they'll start receiving connection errors, etc. Once they log back in, they are fine. We have other remote offices that dont have this problem, and they all connect through the same type of Fortigate FW configured all the same. I've contacted the application vendor's support folks, and they say that the application is set the way it is supposed to be, and when I contact Fortigate, they cant find any reason for the timeouts.

What are some ideas that I should look at? I thought about the SQL Server, but if other offices are not having problems, then it would probably not be that. Any ideas would help, Im spinning my wheels at this point.

For info purposes the application is "Elite Enterprise" and that connects to the SQL Server.

Thanks in advance for the help!

Hi,



Can anyone help in identifying why once my vpn client enabled. I can  ping all other internal IPs except 192.168.4.1(interface DatabaseZone)  and 192.168.3.1. My vpn client assigned 192.168.5.100 which is in  the range ov VpHi,

So I've been tasked with creating an IPSec VPN using a Cisco RV325. I've followed through several guides to get this setup and as it currently stands, I've managed to create the tunnel, connect and authenticate to the VPN successfully using the Shrewsoft VPN Client. However, once connected with either the IPSec VPN or the EasyVPN, I am able to ping the internal address of the router, but unable to ping any other device on the remote LAN. I've made sure firewalls are turned off for testing purposes just to ensure the packets aren't being blocked. I've also tried RDP connections to devices with no joy.

Interestingly, when I tried using the PPTP VPN through the RV325 (using windows 'connect to a network') I'm able to ping everything and remote access servers etc.

I've noticed that the RV325 will give you a virtual IP address range (which the VPN client is picking up) although it seems like there's no kind of address translation or routing to the subnet I need to get to. My remote LAN uses 172.16.8.x/24, the virtual addresses use 172.16.9.x/24.

Please let me know if any log files, config files or screenshots of anything would be of any troubleshooting help and I'll get them posted. Any ideas welcome!

Many thanks in advanced,
Luke

Hey guys,

I´m troubleshooting very interesting issue...we have a branch connected over IPsec (setup on Mikrotik)...everything works pretty much fine but network drivers...when users wants to open it it takes very long time to open it approx 5 mins...if they connect over VPN everything is fine. Any ideas? We use 3des encryption for IPsec

Thank you very much!!

I have several Cisco 881 deployed in the field for VPN connectivity back to my main office.   When the ASA at the main office gets rebooted during routine maintenance, the Cisco 881 always have to be rebooted before they will re-establish a VPN connection.   Is there anything I can put in the config, that would allow the Cisco 881's to auto reconnect after the ASA has been rebooted?   Below is a copy of one of the configs.  Thanks in advance.

Hi there, I have created  Windows 7 Hosted VPN (PPTP) and it seems to work OK buit file sharing / ping is sporadic. The connection is almost immediate but I often cannot ping the host or access file shares.

So testing ::
I connect and try ping - no response
I disconnect and reconnect - ping has no response
I disconnect and reconnect - ping reply OK and file sharing work fine -nice and fast
I disconnect and reconnect - ping has no response
I disconnect and reconnect - ping reply OK and file sharing work fine -nice and fast
I disconnect and reconnect - ping has no response
I disconnect and reconnect - ping reply OK and file sharing work fine -nice and fast
I disconnect and reconnect - ping has no response
I disconnect and reconnect - ping reply OK and file sharing work fine -nice and fast
I disconnect and reconnect - ping has no response

etc etc etc

Any ideas? I don't want my users to have to connect and disconnect and reconnect to get it to work?

I have P2P links that are *separate* from our internet services.  They are up and running.
We provide internet service to remote sites through the P2P links from the main site.
This is shown in the first attachment.
Now we want to encrypt the traffic on the links.  So using VPNs on the links seems reasonable for this.
This is shown in the second attachment.

Note that the VPNs would *not* be on public internet tunnels.  They would be on the P2P links.
As such, they are supported by separate routers at each site.
Each of these routers serves as a gateway to each of the other site subnets.
The main site P2P router interface serves as a gateway for the other sites to the internet (and routes over the main LAN to the main LAN internet gateway/Firewall).

As an aside:
We could abandon the use of RV042s as the P2P link interfaces.  But it would be nice perhaps to just keep them in service.
Note that currently, the Main Site RV042 is "inverted" with the WAN port on the "inside" or "pointing to the internet".
I was convinced this was necessary for it to work.
It seems to me that an ideal "router" wouldn't care which end was connected to which network.
But, perhaps the routing table and the DNS functions in the RV042 make a difference.
It seems clear that we can't use the VPN capability if it's inverted.
So, we're going to have to at least "turn it around" and then maybe the internet connection won't work any longer.

Back to the main question:

Hi All,
We have a Draytek 2960 setup with a teleworker dial-in connection using L2tp over IPSEC and it works perfectly for all users apart from those using Hp Elitebooks! The connection always fails with an Error 809 even though we can connect with the same details using another laptop from the same remote office.
We've even installed the draytek vpn client but that fails with an unknown error. I have switched off the antivirus and the firewall and this doesnt help.
Has anyone got any ideas?

Dear Team, we have Server 2008 R2 acting as VPN server with Routing and Remote Access role. However, we suffered a reliability problem when we always have to restart service in order to run VPN smoothly. Sometimes, we even have to restart the Server, so that remote users can log in with their username/password.

We only have MSE antivirus, no any other special.

Can anyone explain please?

I have 2 non-domain Windows 7 machines that connect remotely to the domain using VPN on a Windows 2012 R2 server. One recently stopped working, after connecting it immediately redisplays the connect screen. In the client's event log is an event: Error RasSstp 6: The SSTP-based VPN connection to the remote access server was terminated because of a security check failure.  Security settings on the remote access server did not match the settings on this computer.

The other W7 machine is able to connect to the domain. There are two Windows 2012 Servers in the domain configured for VPN. I switched to the other server (by changing the router's port forwarding tables). Same problem, the one W7 machine couldn't connect but the other W7 could connect. I looked at the VPN properties on the 2 W7 clients. They are the same.

What do I need to do to make the security settings match so the W7 can connect via VPN again?

Thanks
