PPTP VPN in PIX 506e

Hello

Here's my problem. I have a pptp vpn configured in my pix 506e. I can connect fine and browse network resources on the remote network by IP address. I can connect to any computer using MS remote desktop connection. I cannot browse by netbios name, also I am using the windows vpn client and when I clear the check box "use default gateway on remote network" I connect but cannot see any network resources and am unable to ping anything.

I have copied a partial configuration here. Please keep in mind that I am a newcomer to cisco PIX.

Re: PPTP VPN in PIX 506e

Make sure the VPN server (PIX Firewall, Cisco VPN Concentrator or a router) successfully assigns a DNS server IP address to the Cisco VPN Client. To check, issue the ipconfig/all command on your PC after you are connected with the VPN Client.

If you do not see the correct IP address for your DNS field, check the configuration on the VPN server to make sure it was configured properly. This pushes the DNS server's IP address to the VPN Client's IP address.

To assign the DNS server's IP address for the VPN Client's, issue these commands:

On the PIX Firewall:

vpngroup test dns-server x.x.x.x

Note: The test dns-server is an optional parameter that is available when issuing the vpngroup command.

On the router:

crypto isakmp client configuration group 3000client

dns x.x.x.x

On the VPN Concentrator:

Go under Configuration > User Management > Groups.

Select the group you are working with and click Modify Group.

Go to the General tab and scroll down. You can assign DNS settings to the clients in this location. Make sure the correct IP address was specified.

If the VPN Client receives the correct DNS IP address from the VPN server, but name resolution still does not work, check to make sure the Network Basic Input and Output System (NetBIOS) over Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) and IP option is checked under Advanced TCP/IP properties > WINS on the PC that runs the VPN Client.

Note: If you do not have split tunneling configured for the VPN Client, you will not be able to use the DNS server of the Internet Service Provider (ISP) anymore. This is because all traffic is now encrypted and sent to the VPN server

Re: PPTP VPN in PIX 506e

I have this same problem right now, and as far as I can tell its because my VPN clients are receiving invalid netmasks and default gateways. For example, I defined an IP pool for VPN users, and the addresses are handed out correctly. But an ipconfig reveals the information as :

IP: 10.1.1.200

Netmask: 255.255.255.255

Def Gateway: 10.1.1.200

Where can I change what the assigned netmask and gateway are?
