Im used to using Sonicwalls and hav absolutly no problem setting up VPN's on them.
I have never dealt with 871's before and have come to the realization that this is NOT the most friendliest device around. They dont need to make it this complicated do they??
We have two locations each with 871 routers. All I am trying to do is fix the VPN connection that was already setup in them but disconnecting after 24 hours.
I configured each site for ESP-3DES-SHA with a preshared key.
I guess what I dont understand is this whole SDM IPsecrules.
Whenever I see an answer to these types of questions, all I see are thes "configuration" files. First of off, they files are impossible to read and understand.
After not getting this to work properly, I decided to try my hand at resetting the VPN up from scratch. When I go to add VPN connection, All I see for an interface is VLAN- 4 instead of FastEthernet which is what I need ( the connections that are already setup are using this interface).
I just dont get it. Im having a hard time finding a step by step setup procedure. (sonicwal is good at step-by-step procedures)
All I can say is after using these, Im never going to optthe use of these int he future. I just need to get these working for now though.
Thanks for any help that you can provide me :-)
