PIX 506 and VPN

Here's my scenerio:

I have a wireless network with 3 access points and a Win2k Server acting as DHCP, WINS and VPN server for the wireless clients.

I want to stick the PIX between the access points and Win2k server.

My question is, will the PIX allow me to pass L2TP over IPSEC through it to my VPN server? I know that the PIX is capable of doing the VPN, but I want to use my existing solution as it works fine!

I enabled UDP isakmp outside and inside via an access list, as well as any IP (need help on which to use, instead of all).

Anyway, I get no answer from the VPN server and there is nothing in the error logs.

To verify that my VPN client was setup right, I bypassed the PIX and was able to get connected.

Your help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.



Re: PIX 506 and VPN

While I haven’t tried it myself, I can’t see why it wouldn’t work with the right ports and protocols open on the PIX. Make sure you are using NAT (or NAT 0) and not port translation. Also, look in your debug log files to see if there are issues during the connection attempt.
