PIX PPTP Server: Clients fails to login on windows domain

--begin ciscomoderator note-- The following post has been edited to remove potentially confidential information. Please refrain from posting confidential information on the site to reduce security risks to your network. -- end ciscomoderator note --


I've followed all steps described in the document "How to Configure the Cisco Secure PIX Firewall to Use PPTP" and I've the pix accepting pptp connections and doing authentication via radius. The problem is that client PCs can't log into the windows NT domain. My local test network is and the PIX enters pptp users to network I get the following debug when the client tries to log in the windows domain:

Jun 02 2003 16:08:35: %PIX-6-603102: PPP virtual interface 1 - user: ING\test aaa authentication started

Jun 02 2003 16:08:41: %PIX-6-603103: PPP virtual interface 1 - user: ING\test aaa authentication succeed

Re: PIX PPTP Server: Clients fails to login on windows domain

This is a connection-related message. This message occurs when a packet is sent to the

same interface that it arrived on. This usually indicates that a security breach is occurring. When

the PIX Firewall receives a packet, it tries to establish a translation slot based on the security

policy you set with the global and ACL commands, and your routing policy set with the route


Failing both policies, PIX Firewall allows the packet to flow from the higher priority network to a

lower priority network, if it is consistent with the security policy. If a packet comes from a lower

priority network and the security policy does not allow it, PIX Firewall routes the packet back to

the same interface.

To provide access from an interface with a higher security to a lower security, use the nat and

global commands. For example, use the nat command to let inside users access outside servers, to let

inside users access perimeter servers, and to let perimeter users access outside servers.

To provide access from an interface with a lower security to higher security, use the static and

ACL commands. For example, use the static and commands to let outside users access

inside servers, outside users access perimeter servers, or perimeter servers access inside servers.

Action Fix your configuration to reflect your security policy for handling these attack events.
