iPhone/iPad VPN connection

Re: iPhone/iPad VPN connection

You should use "FiskeVPN" as account name, and the password defined in the following command.

vpngroup FiskeVPN password ********

I did that and it did not work. Get the same message "The VPN server did not respond."

It also asks for Group Name and Secret.  Would that also be FiskeVPN with the group password?  I tried putting that in also and still got the same error.

Any help is greatly appreciated.  Thanks.

Sorry, if it is asked for group name and password, you should use "FiskeVPN" with the group password.

Could you please check your log to see if the connection from your iphone was denied?

If possible, run "debug crypto isa" to see if your pix gets phase 1 request from iphone?

Here is an example of ipsec-l2tp vpn on code 8.x for iPhone and iMac.

Re: iPhone/iPad VPN connection

I cannot view that file link.  It says I dont have proper access.

I ran the command on the PIX but I didn't see any results.  Do I have to do something to see if the iPhone connection was denied.

Again, I apologize, obviosuly I am no Cisco expert.  Thanks again.

Can you provide the full configuration of your PIX?

Yes......sorry I was on vacation for a few days.

Hi Dan,

I played with 6.3 code in lab with a iPhone running OS 4 but I could not make it work.

The problem is that iPhone got username/password prompt but no place to input them. I am not sure if it is bug or not.

Since your code is too old, are you planning to upgrade it to 7.x or 8.x?

You might need add more memory for the upgrading and the syntax of commands is different from that of 6.3.x.

Re: iPhone/iPad VPN connection

We were not planning on upgrading PIX to 7 or 8.0.  Is

that why it is not working? Do you think if we upgrade, the VPN on the iPhone will work?

Re: iPhone/iPad VPN connection

I am not 100% sure if it is the reason but I could not make it work on 6.3.x code.

To my knowledge, I know it works fine with version 7.x and 8.x.

It looks to me you don't have a 3DES licence, you can get that as a free upgrade.

iPhone (Apple) only supports 3DES.
