VPN Question

I've installed a PIX 515E at my facility. The inside interface has no restrictions leaving the network. A few key protocols are permitted in the outside interface (smtp, www, etc) to statically mapped servers.

I need to create a PPTP VPN on one of the boss’s computer to another network that uses a SonicWall firewall.

When I create the VPN account using the parameters provided by the remote site administrator and test it, it fails (timeout).

When I test this setup / account from my home DSL account (using the ISP modem or a Linksys router) it works fine.

What do I need to change on the PIX to allow this traffic?

Thanks,

Tom

Re: VPN Question

You need to add the following command to your PIX firewall:

fixup protocol pptp 1723

Refer to the link below for the reason you need to put this in.
