VPN Management/connectivity

Good afternoon,

I have a couple of questions on setting up a VPN on a PIX 515. We currently have VPN setup (a vendor set this up) where 4 of us in the office share a username/password to access the network. I would like to be able to setup multiple accounts and be able to log who connects and when.

Also, when I connect to the VPN I can gain access to an application that runs on TCP/IP, but can't browse network resources on our Novell network. I thought that I needed to connect to our ips with IPX selected as an additional protocol, but it wouldn't let me connect with IPX--just IP. I need to be able to access our Novell network. We also have a Windows domain that we need to allow users to access (they're using roaming profiles).Any suggestions? Is there some documentation that I could read up on?


Re: VPN Management/connectivity

depending on the pix's firmware version, you can set up a local username and password database on the pix.

IPX does not run over ipsec tunnels, unless you are doing GRE tunnelling which you cannot do on a pix. What version of novell are you running? You will probably want to migrate novell to running over IP

Yes, that does make sense. We're running NetWare 5.1 and are in the process of migrating to IP only. We are currently running IP on our boxes, so I guess I'll need to check the internal network to see if that's where the problem lies.
