Airport Express shuts off when VPN avtive

Hi all,

I bought an Airport Express (AE) the other day to stream iTunes tracks to me distant speakers. I am using a laptop, Windows XP, SP 2. I all works brilliantly.

However, the moment I am connecting through VPN (Cisco Client) to my university, AE is no longer recognized.

The VPN is configurated that it only allows IPsec / UDP. Ports cannot be added. It runs on port 1000.

Is there anything I can do to make the AE reappear during a VPN-session? I need to be connected via VPN most of the time.

I would greatly appreciate your input!!




Re: Airport Express shuts off when VPN avtive

By default, the security appliance allows IPsec packets to bypass interface access control lists (ACLs). In order to allow specific traffic for a VPN tunnel, apply interface access lists. Complete these steps (apart from the basic VPN configuration) on the PIX/ASA:

1. Use the no form of these commands in order to disable sysopt connection permit-ipsec on PIX version 6.3 and sysopt connection permit-VPN on PIX/ASA version 7.x.

2. Create an access-list for traffic that goes into the outside interfaces. Refer to this access-list example in order to allow only Telnet traffic:

access-list outside_in extended permit tcp eq 23

3. Create an access group and bind it to the outside interface. For example:

access-group outside_in in interface outside
