VPN3000 LAN/WAN ACCESS TROUBLE

I received a panicky call from a client saying they've "lost" PRIVILEGED access to their VPN3000 from inside LAN and outside WAN HTTPS connections.

connectivity and logon are ok. They can admin the hardware but, I'm told, everything under the ADMINISTRATION tree is being prohibited.

For example, ADMINISTRATION > ACCESS RIGHTS, results in "You do not have sufficient authorization to access the specified page." being displayed.

They had inside-only and were trying for inside and outside both.

I suspect, though am not sure, they added networks n.n.n.n/m.m.m.m to the workstation manager settings screen and something is incorrect and, consequently, they can connect/login BUT CANNOT ACCESS THE ADMIN areas.

Since admin/privileged http/https access appears pooched, I tried ssh and it is similarly not exposing the admin/mgmt commands.

Please ... What is the recovery procedure.

Console access and then from console go into admin/mgmt, or is something more required?

We don't normally do the vpn3000's so this is new territory for us.

All help appreciated (concise steps most helpful owing to our vpn3000-noob status).

Thanks...!

Re: VPN3000 LAN/WAN ACCESS TROUBLE

The common issue with the inability to connect to the serial interface of the concentrator is either the cable being used is wrong or faulty, or the terminal software is not set correctly. Please make sure you are using the cable provided with the concentrator when you first got the box, otherwise you can use a db9 adaptor with a straight through serial cable, and connect that to your

pc's serial port. Set the terminal software for 9600, 8, n, 1, hardware. If you believe you meet the above setup, try using a different pc, and or terminal software like secure CRT.

I posted, "...I received a panicky call from a client saying they've "lost" PRIVILEGED access to their VPN3000 from inside LAN and outside WAN HTTPS connections."

REPEAT: "from the inside LAN and the outside WAN."

There's no problem with console access other then remoteness and distance; it's a workstation manager's setting problem, not a db9 cable issue.
