RV082 - QuickVPN - Windows 7 Home Edition 64 bits

Bonsoir,

J'ai mis en place un routeur RV082 avec comme version de firmware "v4.1.1.01-sp (Dec 6 2011 20:03:18)".

J'ai un modem netgear en mode Bridge.

Je me connecte en https sur l'interface de gestion de celui-ci sans aucun problème depuis l'exterieur.

Sur le poste client (Windows 7 Home Edition 64 bits), j'ai installé le client QuickVPN 1.4.2.1. Lorsque j'essaye de me connecter avec celui-ci, j'ai un message d'erreur "The remote gateway is not responding. Do you want to wait". J'ai aussi installé le client CISCO VPN IPSec pour me connecter à autre site, celui-ci fonctionne correctement.

Au niveau des logs du poste, j'obtiens les infos suivantes :

J'ai désactivé l'antivirus et le firewall (F-secure et Windows) et après des tests j'obtiens le même résultat.

Est-ce qu'une personne a déjà rencontré le problème et existe t-il une solution?

Dans l'attente de vous lire,

Re: RV082 - QuickVPN - Windows 7 Home Edition 64 bits

Hello everyone,

Some things to be aware of...

Router Requirements:

  1. Depending on the device Remote Management needs to be on and configured for port 443 or 60443.
  2. Users need to be created and enabled.
  3. Only One Connection per User Account.
    1. Username and passwords must match and are case sensitive.
  4. Local Network Subnet must be different than Remote Network Subnet.
  5. If using Certificate the .pem file needs to be exported and placed under the “C:\Program Files\Cisco Small Business\QVPN Client” folder.

Microsoft XP SP3 (until 2014)

  1. Must be running Service Pack 3
  2. Must have the Windows Firewall Off (you can have the firewall on but ICMP Echo Requests are required inbound through the software Firewall for a connection to establish.)
  3. Must have IPSec Services Running

Windows Vista/ 7

  1. QuickVPN must run Vista Service Pack 2 or run in Vista Service Pack 2 compatibility for Windows 7.
  2. Windows Firewall needs to be on. (Other Firewall software will interfere.)
    1. Add ICMP rules to the Windows Firewall.
  3. Must have IPSec Services Running.
  4. You can test QuickVPN in safe mode with networking on Windows 7. XP will not because IPsec services will not start. (Note some antivirus and other programs will still run in safe mode.)

The QuickVPN Utility is just a front end interface that allows for a user friendly interface on configuring the Microsoft IPSec service to connect to the router. (That’s why it doesn’t work on any operating system but Microsoft.)

First the client connects using SSL to the router and looks for a certificate.

If you are using a certificate it in needs to be installed or you can click no and bypass the certificate warning.

The next step authenticates the user name and password supplied to the router. Only one client per username can be logged in at one time. Once the user authenticates the IPSec tunnel will negotiate and establish. (Up until this point if anything fails you will get the 5 error message screen.)

At this point the client sends an ICMP Echo Request through the tunnel to the internal IP address of the router. (Yes, if you look the user is connected in the status of the routers interface for the tunnel.) The inside IP address determined during the authentication phase. The router sends an ICMP Echo Reply back through the tunnel to the client. (If this fails you will get the error Remote Gateway not responding.)

Out of the server thousand QVPN issues I have trouble shot it is 90%, or more the client’s windows firewall. The other 5% is third party software or firewall, 3% is customers using the same IP subnet on both sides of the tunnel, and the last 2% is configuration issues on the router.

Software like Windows Defender and other Antivirus and software will modify the TCP/IP stack and the security of the operating system. Some of these software’s will run in safe mode and others modify settings that even if removed from the computer will continue to prohibit the QuickVPN process.

Since XP, Microsoft has continued to make their operating systems more secure. The more secure you make something the more user unfriendly, and more productivity prohibiting it becomes. We all want our environment secure, but everyone’s environment is different, and manually changes must be made to allow traffic that we want to work through this added security.

By default Windows 7 is a more secure operating system then XP, and will block ICMP from other subnets than its own by default.

Thank Randy,

It's work good, I just activate the Windows 7 Firewall and stop the firewall off FSecure.

Best regards.
