I need help. I can find no documentation on this problem. I have a Microsoft Small Business Server which I have been running for some time. I have been using for the last 10 years the private IP space 192.168.1.x, with subnet mask 255.255.255.0. I have an Active Directory structure that is based on this address space with my default route for the network at 192.168.1.254. I recently purchase a CISCO SA 520W appliance. Every time I add a VPN user to the VPN User Database, I get a popup that states "WARNING: In order to ensure proper functionality, the router will need to change its IP address to 10.x.y.1 to avoid conflicts with the remote network. You will need to reboot all PCs and network devices connected to the router. If you have set static IP addresses on any device or if you are using port forwarding, you will need to update its IP address to new IP range to operation. Would you like to continue?" With a se;ection of "OK" or "Cancel". If I select "OK" the router resets and I can no longer get access to it, resulting in me setting it back to factory default and starting over.If I select "Cancel" at this point it does not add the user to the database. I have tried everything I can think of. If I use the default IP address or any other IP address space, as long as I don't use 192.168.1.x, it works fine. This seems to be some limit set by Cisco. Although I can't understand why as the IP space is a very common one in use. Is there any solution except for reconfiguring my DNS, and active directory.
Please respond understanding that I am a mid level capable network engineer, I have worked with CISCO in the past but mainly Enterprise level layer 2 and 3 switches. I am a netwok security person (CISSP) with medium network skill levels.
