Has anyone been fortunate enough to be able to get Win2000Pro using IPSEC to talk to a PIX Firewall. I have tried, to no prevail. I keep on receiving error messages saying that the filter-lists are invalid, and that i am using 3DES, where in both cases I am not. I have installed the service pack 1, still doesn't work. As far as i'm aware, the firewall is configured properly as i can access it via a win98 box with the cisco vpn client. So far, with my interactions with TAC, they have said that no one knows of any resources on the subject - despite the fact that the IPSEC "stack" was co-authored between cisco and microsoft!
If anyone can help with suggestions, examples or even an instruction set, it would be greatly appreciated.
We have configured the outside and inside Interface with official ipv6 adresses, set a default route on outside Interface to our router, we also have definied a rule , which also gets hits, to permit tcp from inside Interface to any6.
In Syslog I also se...
