ISP Change Breaks VPN connectivity

Yesturday, my office changed ISP's for the office network. With both ISP's we have a static IP. After the change, I updated our Pix 501 with the new IP/Gateway/Netmask etc.

Everything works with our new ISP (NAT, inbound and outbound rules) except for incoming VPN connections. We are using the Cisco VPN client version 4.0.5.

When we try to connect, there are several errors in the client's log, including:

113 09:58:28.859 11/12/05 Sev=Info/4 IKE/0x63000014


114 09:58:28.859 11/12/05 Sev=Warning/3 IKE/0xA300004B

Received a NOTIFY message with an invalid protocol id (0)

122 09:58:48.984 11/12/05 Sev=Info/4 IKE/0x6300002D

Phase-2 retransmission count exceeded: MsgID=7B547781

127 09:59:18.984 11/12/05 Sev=Info/4 IKE/0x63000017

Marking IKE SA for deletion (I_Cookie=9E21D7B4888AE395 R_Cookie=BCEB70FBDCF2CE50) reason = DEL_REASON_PEER_NOT_RESPONDING

There is nothing in the Pix PDM log. We have been successfully connecting to this firewall VPN for three months prior. Again, the only configuration change was the ISP info.

Attempting to crrect the problem, we have tried CLEAR XLATE, power cycling the PIX, and creating a new VPN account.

Any input on this would be appreciated.


Re: ISP Change Breaks VPN connectivity

although it's very unusual, however you may need to verify with the new isp as the isp may have restriction on the vpn traffic.

I called their tech support, and they are telling me that nothing is blocked.

Attached is our configuration and the connection log from the client. Sensitive info has been replaced by .


Re: ISP Change Breaks VPN connectivity

couple things you may try. firstly, try applying "isakmp identity address" on the pix.

further, it is not recommended to overlap the vpn client pool and the pix inside net.

Problem Solved: Oddly enough, a second power-cycle of the firewall cleared up the problem.

Thanks for the help!


Re: ISP Change Breaks VPN connectivity

i thought v6.3.4 is very stable. anyhow, it's good to learn that your issue has been resolved.
