Users were not able to get connected to my PIX 515E 6.3 using VPN
client. Upon further investigation I found that users could initially
connect to the PIX. But if they move out of the wireless range (i.e.
lose their network connectivity) while they are connected to the PIX,
then they will not be able to get connected back to pix.
I changed the idle-time for the vpn profile from 3 hours and reduced it
to 3 minutes. Still the session time out does not work and I could see
multiple entires for the user while giving
"sh isakmp sa".
I searched the group for similar problems but could not find any.
Have anyone of you faced a similar problem. Does any solution come
into your mind ?

Are you set for isakmp identity hostname or
isakmp identity address
The identity is used when a new phase 1 tunnel has to be
negotiated due to disconnection. The client sends its identity
as part of an ISAKMP clause that means "remove all previous
security associations from this identity". If the identity offered
upon reconnect does not happen to match the identity that was
previously offered, then the previous SA are not going to be
thrown away, and it is going to take time before the PIX figures
out that it should no longer bother to match against those particular
ACL entries associated with the SAs.
USB Keys and Cisco VPN Concentrator / Cisco VPN Client ? I am aware of various USB type keys that work in conjunction with the
Cisco VPN client and the Cisco VPN concentrator for added security.
The two that come to mind are:
Can anyone think of and recommend any others ? Looking to evaluate
various ones out there.
Anyone know of anything along these lines but that also contain the
Cisco VPN client? The idea being user has a USB key, that they can
plug into any internet accessible windows pc, and launch the client
from the key rather then having to install and setup the Cisco VPN
client. Just trying to get a better...
Double VPN connection with Cisco VPN client Hello,
I use Cisco VPN client at work to connect to:
1. the *production* network, when I am in office
2. the *office* network, when I am out of office.
Sometimes I need to connect to the production network when I am out of
office. Ideally, I would like to connect to VPN 2 and then to VPN 1
(i.e. a VPN within another VPN).
Is this feature supported by Cisco VPN client?
[apparently, Windows XP integrated IPsec supports it, but then Windows
XP does not support group authentication, which I need]

VPN concentrator/Cisco VPN client and UDP We have a Cisco VPN concentrator that we use to connect to our
network. The location of our concentrator dictates that we must use
UDP to creat our ipsec tunnel (firewall in the path).
This means we aren't using AH and ESP is configured to be the method
of encryption. My question is that in the UDP only configuration what
is the anti replay safety measure used and is this implementation
based on an RFC or is it simply Cisco's way around VPN through PAT?

VPN via Cisco Remote VPN Client Hi,
I have the problem that I can't use the cisco remote vpn client. The
problem is, that I'm sitting behind a Suse Linux Firewall with
If I want to establish a connection my client pc sends a SYN-Packet to
the destination server on port 264. I guess that the server wants to
answer to my local ip which is in a 192.168.x.x subnet and not
accessible from the internet.
I think I have to make NAT via iptables on the suse linux firewall in
my network, so that the server replaces the 192.168.x.x address witch
my internet ip, but how can i do that?
I also have to make some s...
W2K vpn client to Cisco 3005 VPN concentrator I've got a project to configure a Cisco 3005 vpn concentrator to allow
connections from the w2k builtin vpn client.
The concentrator currently has users connecting via the Cisco client
using IPSec, and authenticating against an Active Directory server.
The way I understand things is, PPTP is supported, but only without
encryption when authentication against Active Directory. And the only
other option is L2TP/IPSec, which is mutually exclusive with the
IPsec-only that's currently in use. (Have I got this all correct?)
So, the only option open here is PPTP without encryption, correct?...
Cisco VPN client configuration Hello,
I want to be able to restrict access to my vpn users depending on the
IP address assigned to them by the VPN server. I could do this by
assigning different IPs to each of the different groups that access the
vpn server so each group has a defined pool of IPs. My problem is, how
can i define more than one vpn group using the same interface for the
connection? I saw somebody made a configuration creating subinterfaces
on the main interface and assigning different maps to each of them, is
it possible to do it using only the main interface since I want
everybody to connect to the same IP ad...
using windows xp to connect to a vpn. Is it necessary Cisco VPN Client? Is there a way to configure windows xp to connect to a vpn without using the
Cisco VPN client?
I mean, I wouldn't like to install the Cisco Client VPN, and perhaps XP is
enough to connect to the vpn.
You can use PPTP. It is inbuilt into XP systems. Or, L2TP with IPSEC
(very tough to configure on an XP tho)

Easy VPN Server and Cisco VPN Client 4.0.3 Hi:
I am using an 827 configured as an Easy VPN Server (running 12.3).
I am successfully able to establish a VPN client running on my laptop.
I am also using split tunneling and while the tunnel is up, I am able
to browse the internet and talk with my local LAN without any
The problem is that I cannot ping any client on the inside
(192.168.1.x) when the VPN connection is established. The client gets
an ip from the pool i have configured on 827 (192.168.1.240-247).
On the 827, the reverse-route injection is also enabled. Once the
tunnel is up, I can see the /32 route to the client...
Cisco VPN Client v 4.6 and Cisco Aironet Wireless Adapter Hi,
I am using a custom combination bundled install of the Cisco VPN Client
v4.6 and Cisco Aironet Wireless adapter. If an ethernet LAN pcmcia
card is installed in the laptop PCMCIA slot during the install, the
wireless card install waits until a card is inserted before proceeding
(as expected). In general if the vpn client install completes before
the Aironet wireless install trying a subsequent vpn connection over
wireless fails. However, If the vpn client is installed AFTER the
wireless LAN adapter, everything seems to work just fine (vpn over
wireless). I want to ensure the VPN client...
Changing Windows Passwords I have remote access configured between a PIX running IOS 7.2(1) and
Cisco VPN clients running 4.8. I'm currently authenticating using
RADIUS from IAS running on a Windows 2003 Server. This server is

maintained on it.
How do I enable changes to the Windows password when a user's password
has expired or they first get their account and are required to change
the password at first login? All my users are remote and never local
so the VPN is their only access. I know this is possible using the
Concentrator but the PIX and...
MAC OS X using Cisco VPN Client through CISCO PIX 501 Hi,

Cisco VPN Client 4.6.00.0049 to Cisco router 12.3.8T5, ACL's ? Hello,
I regulary implement Cisco routers for our customers. About a year ago the
demand for being able to VPN rose, and after some TAC calls I succeeded in
configuring this on a Cisco router. At that time it were mostly 1700 series
routers (running IOS 12.2.15Tx) with the Cisco 4.0x VPN Client. That
configuration has been implemented at numerous sites since then, and works
But since we started implementing routers with IOS 12.3.8Tx and the Cisco

processing the VPN traffic. In my original config I ne...

Bug with the Cisco VPN Client? I have a VPN Client issue I wanted to post here before I report it to
the Cisco TAC. I have about 15 profiles in my VPN Client (4.8.00 on
XP) The Client has crashed my computer a couple times, not sure why
and am unable to replicate it on demand. When it crashes, it deletes
my configuration files. When I navigate to the C:\Program Files\Cisco
Systems\VPN Client\Profiles, all the configuration files are still
there but empty, no group names, passwords, etc. Very strange, has
another else experienced this?

Problem with Cisco VPN Client I vpned into worked using my cell phone (dialup networking). I

nothing is being encrypted nor decriped. Why is that? Any thoughts?
In simple terms the encrypted traffic is not reaching to the device.
You are using the cell phone to connect to the internet. Check if the

it is pvt it is proxied otherwise n...
