VPN Client TCP 10000

VPN Client versions tried 4.x and 5.x

VPN Endpoint Cisco 3005

Profile - Group Authentication / Transparent Tunneling TCP 10000

Works just fine on every network tested except one.

Wireshark packet capture during initial setup.

On working networks, DNS resolves then immediate syn/syn-ack/ack to TCP 10000 then IKE like its supposed to.

On this one network, DNS resolves then a UDP to 62515 and no response from VPN concentrator.  What I can't figure out is how the client is deciding to send TCP or UDP initially.  I see no other traffic.  Boggled right now.

Any help?


Re: VPN Client TCP 10000

Is the client PC directly connected to the Internet or is there a router in front of it?  If so, the router could be filtering that traffic.  If not, it's possible the Service Provider could block ports other than HTTP, HTTPS, FTP, etc.

Re: VPN Client TCP 10000

There is a checkpoint firewall on this side.  It is allowing all IP.

The thing I can't understand is how the client is determining to open up with a UDP 62515 packet on the non-working LAN and TCP 10000 over the aircard or at a hotel.  It's only when the client starts by TCP to 10000 that VPN works.

I would expect that the client would behave the same way regardless of the media the network is connected to.  That doesn't appear to the be the case.

Here is some information on the use of UDP port 62515 by the VPN client.   HTH
