One VPN connection at a time.

I have an issue with the Cisco 4.01 VPN client connecting more then one connection.

I have it set to connect to the remote sight using the following parameters

Group Authentication

Transparent Tunneling with IPSec over UDP (Nat / Pat)

I have also selected allow local LAN access

I am connecting to the remote network through a Sonicwall firewall to the remote Cisco device.

I have no problem getting connected to the remote network. All connection attempts work.

If I have a VPN connection connected and active the next connection that is made disconnects the first one. This is repeatable and constant. So each connection is successful but it always disconnects any session that is active from that location.

Multiple sessions are possible as long as they don’t originate from the one site. In other words workers working from home do not affect workers working from the main office.

Any Ideas as to what may be causing this?


Re: One VPN connection at a time.

just wondering what sort of cisco device we are discussing here.

the issue maybe related to the vpn client pool.

e.g. the pool should start with x.x.x.1, not an entire subnet.

Well it's a customer of ours and I don't have that info just yet. I'll try and chase that down in the am.
