Cisco VPN doesn't work with iPod Touch/iPhone

Unanswered Question

I set up my company's VPN network on a PIX506E firewall. but when i tried to connect to the vpn from my ipod touch, it failed. it uses IPSec over UDP. does ipod touch/ipohone only work with IPSec over TCP? If so, what differently i need to do to setup my pix506E to use IPSec over TCP instead?



I have this problem too.

Hello Tharaka,

The Apple iPhone/iTouch only works with IPSec over NAT-T if it is connecting through a NAT device or just IPSec. Its the client side limitation.

So, you might want to enable IPSec over NAT-T on your PIX 506E to support iPhone/iTouch IPSec connections.

Command Usage:

isakmp nat-traversal [natkeepalive]

You can enter a keepalive value of 20. (Its in seconds.

Please rate this post if it helps.
