Re: PPTP VPN

Hello Devang

I will respond your mail later this week. I was a bit held up !!!

actually running PPTP on the router also makes sense... you will have more control of the connections coming onto your network. terminate the PPTP on the router, assign an IP address pool for the users on the router, and restrict the IP Pool to access specific ports on the inside segment on the PIX. you can also log the traffic with an IPS... if you terminate the tunnel directly on the PIX, once connected, they are directly on the inside network !!

Let us know your results !!!

Re: PPTP VPN

Hello devang,

The debug messages does not show any significant error message.. did you do debug vpdn error/packets/events. u can also try debug ppp uauth.. what really happens here ?? is your authentication not happening ? or after authentication, u are not getting IP ??

The config seems kinda OK.. however u can add two things to ur config.. you have added mschap authentication. u can also add pap & chap to make sure you have added the right auth protocols.. vpdn group 1 ppp authentication pap & chap.. u can add these... apart from this, u can also try disabling the fixup protocol for PPTP and try...

Let us know...

Re: PPTP VPN

hi raj,

now both pix and router configuration is working no problem... one thing i dont understand is PPTP on PIX is not allowing the tunneling through the subnet addresses of my office but its work well from outside network...

anyway thanks a lot for your respons but please reply to my mail so i can think of further...

regards

Devang
