What ports to forward over my PIX for remote VPN.

Unanswered Question
Feb 8th, 2007

I'm running a PIX-506E at my home and another one at a business. I have remote VPN setup through the remote PIX so I can connect to it from my Sprint card and the VPN software. The problem is my PIX wont let the session connect to any of the PC's on the other end. It will secure the channel, encrypt and connect, but wont let me access anything.

Is there something I'm missing here? Although I don't really know how to forward ports with the PIX software I just bought it... so maybe this would be a good time to learn.

Thank you!!

yu might need to enable "isakmp nat-t" on the headend pix.

Hi Mike,

Apart from enabling NAT-T on the headend PIX, please also make sure that UDP 4500 is allowed on the PIX the VPN client is connecting through.
