VPN 3000

Why when using XP's VPN client, you do not need to add the group access info. to gain access to the VPN ? (security problem) How do I configure the 3000 concentrator to require this group access info. when using the MS VPN Client? I would perferre not to have my users even use this client, but even though, this is still a security risk, considering you only need a name and password to access the VPN...

all responses are appreciated,



Re: VPN 3000

I guess my first question would be why not use the Cisco Software client? Secondly, I am not 100% sure on this but I don't think you ca get the XP client to use group-name but there are some ways to make it more secure. Someone else with more expierince might want to chime in on that one.

Re: VPN 3000

We wish to use the VPN Client. The issue still remains, as a security vulnerability allowing access to the VPN with a simple name and password with the XP client.
