VPN Between PIX's and Movian client


I am trying to setup a VPN between CISCO PIX's and a Pocket PC with Movian VPN Client. Actually nothing is working but CISCO is saying that this client is supported. I would like to know if anybody have feedback on this.

Re: VPN Between PIX's and Movian client

The movian vpn client works fine depending on your configuration. Movian/Certicom will provide you with a sample Pix config if you ask them. You also have to have version 3.0. We have not gotten it to work with certificates. It also only works with "isakmp identity address" instead of hostname which is default.

Hope this helps.

Re: VPN Between PIX's and Movian client


First thanks for your answer. I would like to know if you have a sample because i am working with the one of MOVIAN and it didn't work. I already changed the parameter in the configuration but it's still the same.

Re: VPN Between PIX's and Movian client

I can't at the moment as I am out of the country, but the Movian example worked for me. It's a very simple example, but it's a good place to start. Which part in particualar is not working. Is the client prompting you for a password?

For now if you could post your config I might be able to see a problem. Next week when I'm back at the office I can get you my example, but I don't think you want to wait that long.

Good luck.

Re: VPN Between PIX's and Movian client

Ok I see something that could be the problem. It might be your local ip pool. I have yet to get a pool to work inside my existing inside subnet. I usually set it to something like 192.168.xx.1-192.168.xx.100. Then change your access-list 80 to reflect that change. It would look like "access-list 80 permit 192.168.xx.0".

Also get rid of "nat (inside) 0 0 0" It is conflicting with the nat above it which you need.

Have you been prompted for your password when you try to connect? This is very important to know.

The other thing I noticed is your RADIUS server is on the outside. I would not do that as RADIUS I believe is sent in clear text. Also you may want increase the timeout on RADIUS as well.

Hopefully this helps.

I'm gonna try with an internal Radius, and modificate the configuration. I will let you know if anything is alright.

I forgot to tell you that i didn't have the prompt for password. So i'm going to look for that too.
