PIX 501, VISTA SP1, MS VPN Client (PPTP) - does this work?

Unanswered Question
Nov 28th, 2008

I have PIX 501 v6.3(3) to which XP MS VPN clients (using PPTP) have been working fine for almost 4 years. Now a VISTA SP1 client has been introduced and from searching the web I see this brings with it numerous problems!!!

Understand that VISTA MS VPN client only supports MS-CHAP v2 whereas my PIX only supports MS-CHAP v1 and that my PIX can NOT be upgraded to v7 IOS that supports MS-CHAP v2.

I have tried setting my PIX to only expect/require CHAP and set the same in the VPN definition in VISTA using the advanced security settings but to no avail.

Have now spent 2.5 hours trying various permutations but still no joy.

Have attached PIX config from my last attempt. If anyone can identify where I'm going wrong, that would be very much appreciated. I really do not want to have to go to the trouble/cost of purchasing/setting up Cisco VPN clients just to accommodate one VISTA user at this time.

Many Thanks, SteveB

I have this problem too.
