Question about Linksys BEFSX41 Router (DHBEFSX41)

1 Answer

I am unable to connect Linksys BEFSX41 and Sonicwall 3060

We've been trying for days to create a VPN tunnel with a Linksys BEFSX41 and our corporate BEFSX41 router. We have tried just about every configuration we can think of. We even contacted Linksys support, they worked on it for almost 4 hours and finally concluded that they were not compatible. They suggested I should buy another Sonicwall router at a cost of $500 compared to $70. Has anyone been able to creat a vpn tunnel between these 2 routers?

This person seemed to have no problems with it and includes configurations.

I would also make sure both are the same version or same firmware, I have had trouble in the past with netgears having different firmware not allowing a vpn to be configured.

How do i open udp prts 53,67,68,500,4500 on a linksys wrt54gs2 router


Judging by the port numbers you listed, you are trying to setup a VPN tunnel to a corporate network. If this is a client based VPN, you actually don't need to open these ports at all, given that the router will allow all traffic outbound, by default. However, if you are trying to build a site-to-site VPN, your Linksys router isn't capable of this.

Now, I suppose you may have a device inside your network, behind your router, that is running some VPN software of some sort. In which case you want to turn on port forwarding. This can be a complicated task. Please comment, if that is the case and I will go into more detail.

WRT120N doesn;t permit VPN accesses


Most times when VPN is not working is because one of the ports is not forwarding right. Easy fix is to go to router settings and enable DMZ for your computers IP address. Also you can actually find out what are the ports this VPN uses and go to Port Forwarding part of router and open the ports manually. My favorite is DMZ. All this does is open up ports for your computer IP address so there is no blocked pockets. Good luck.

Sonicwall client won't connect to the internet


The default VPN policy rules prevent LAN access, also known as split-tunneling, since this creates a security risk (the ability of the VPN session to be hijacked or compromised through a covert channel).

If you are not the system admin, you need to talk to your system admin. If you are the system admin, then you need to review the documentation with respect to

Private network > VPN > network firewll > priv net


Add a static route on the Sonicwall 2040 : 192.168.1.0/24 with the RV082 as gateway (the ip of the network shared between the RV082 and the Sonicwall)

Another solution is to enable NAT on RV082 for 192.168.1.0/24 network. Routing is preferable.

I have netgear wpn824 wireless router and it works fine until I try to connect to my work server through their Sonicwall VPN. If I unplug the netgear and go straight into my computer through the DSL modem...


Two routers on two different sets of internal IP addresses will cause all kinds of conflicts. A VPN router is even worse. VPNs (virtual private networks) are designed to create encrypted tunnels between two computers. The computer its set to connect to must be authorized either as a user or a device with proper credentials. If your VPN authorizes devices based on MAC addresses, then unless your router's MAC address was previously authorized, youre not going to connect. Lets take the router out of the equation for a second. Do you have a working broadband connection from the sonicwall that the router can be plugged into? If you do, then you can treat this connection to your router like its a cable modem or DSL. If this connection has manual settings (such as IP address, default gateway, and primary and secondary DNS addresses) you will need these settings too. Post back and keep us updated...

Vpn


this is not so much a soloution but an idea!
from memory the netopia devices allow you to configure a dmz device by IP or MAC address.

I have had to do something similar but with a buffalo unit instead of your linksys. I ended up having to place the buffalo unitin into a dmz created on the netopia unit. before VPN tunnles were formed correctly.

BEFSX41 and Microsoft PPTP


Microsoft uses IP Protocol 47 [GRE] for this secure tunnel. Provided that the PPTP Pass Through is set to Enable on the Router's Filters page and port 1723 is forwarded to the VPN Server, the Router will allow authentication and remote access into your network. The router will also allow you access remote PPtP networks from behind the router providing the PPtP Passthrough is enabled on the router.
