Background: I've fumbled around and succesfully established a VPN tunnel between a remote BEFVP41 and my office RVS4000. Once established, i can acces the office server from a Vista box on my remote network by running this command - \\10.10.10.200 where 10.10.10.200 is the server IP on the office LAN. The problem i was trying to correct was reciprocity - i couldn't do the same thing from here in the office to access a server on my remote network. It only worked one way - from remote network to office.
On the office RVS4000 I had "Local Security Group Type" set to Subnet. I wanted to experiment so I changed this to "IP" and put in the specific IP address of a computer. Upon reconnecting the summary screen on the RVS400 reports that the remote BEFVP41 has connected TO A DIFFERENT TUNNEL!!!!
It connected to a tunnel on the RVS4000 that i had setup to work with a Greenbow client - TOTALLY DIFFERENT preshared key!!! A key that had never been entered in the remote BEFVP41!
Has anyone seen this bug? Is it a bug or operator error of some sort?
It is very reproducible. When I set RVS4000 local security group type to "subnet" the remote BEFVP41 properly connects to the correct tunnel. When I set the RVS4000 local security group type to "IP" the remote BEFVP41 connects to the wrong tunnel.
