VPN with Windows XP and PIX 515e / Cisco VPN Client 3.5

Hello,

I have a Cisco PIX 515e firewall with the 6.2 version of the software, and I have a working VPN solution using Windows 2000 and The Cisco VPN client 3.5

I have been trying without success to get VPN to work with Windows XP. I've tried using the builtin VPN functionality, installing the Client, disabling ICS then installing the client, and it never seems to connect properly.

Does anyone know if connecting to this firewall via Windows XP is even possible?

Thanks,

-Matt

Hi Matt

it is possible.

If you have a cisco client installed on your XP machine now could you try to connect and then post the log from the client please?

I switched to a later version of the client, and I'm still having similar problems... Here's the log: (ip address replaced with x.x.x.x)

Re: VPN with Windows XP and PIX 515e / Cisco VPN Client 3.5

The logs basically says that the VPN Client is not getting a response from the server.

What kind of connection do you have to the internet. If you are behind a firewall, can you try using a dial up connection and see if the VPN Client works. What about the logs from the VPN Server, do you see your connection initiation hitting the VPN Server.

Re: VPN with Windows XP and PIX 515e / Cisco VPN Client 3.5

I am on a high-speed DSL connection and behind an old consumer-grade LinkSys Router/Firewall. VPN has worked to the same Pix515e through this same Linksys router before with no changes, except when I installed Windows XP, it won't connect.

How would I see the logs from the VPN server to see if my other IP is attempting a connection?

Thanks!

You could run debugs on the Pix 515e. That is "deb cry is" and " deb cry ipsec".
