In checkpoint you need to select the other interoperable devices and you have to create the object for the pix firewall and in the vpn communities you have to add the object of yours and the pix.If you want more clarrification you can call me at 09620077956.

Re: Site to site VPN between Checkpoint UTM 1 R62 and...

I couple of points:

PIX has a few dislikes...

1. Pix does not like class A address, make sure you are using B or C.
2. The VPN subnet always has to be differant to the LAN.
3. Has to have a working DNS server.
4. Add static route, and last resort to main ethernet port that has the DNS & R62. (or 2 if on differant sub)

Hope this helps.

I have an older Cisco PIX 506 with two VPN connections. One links two offices (PIX-PIX VPN) together, another is for staff to access email & files. The file server on the local LAN the PIX is on are...

It could be a missing route... are the file server and email server on the same subnet? If they are then it is possibly not a routing issue.

Also it would be worth checking the tunneling settings for the VPNs... if you have specifed either only the fileserver subnet or specifically the file server address, then this could be the reason they can get to nothing else.

Hope that this has helped a little :)

How to connect to my PIX 501 and use Windows Remote Desktop?

Here's a real simple problem to your remote access problems.
Go to:
Sign up for a free acct, download/install their free software on your Server.
Now go over to your laptop, login to your new logmein acct.
In the next page, you'll see your Server listed. Click on it - follow instructions to connect.
This will tunnel through whatever stuff you have on your network!
Trust me - esp. in your scenario, this is *by far* the *simplest remote connect you'll ever perform! And it just .... works! Everytime.

If your cisco vpn client is behind the natted device then you need to allow nat traversal in the head office firewall and if you connect the vpn client through data card it will connect,

Setting up a VPN through watchguard

The key with any VPN solution is to make sure that the configurations on both ends match. I am not very familiar with this particular product, but it looks like you need to have the proper VPN licenses installed first. There are two types of VPN you can do. 1) Site to Site - This is where the are two static boxes that you want to create an encrypted tunnel between 2) Remote User access - This is where mobile users connect to a central site over an encrypted tunnel from their home or on the road. Next, take a looks at the User Guide PDF here: Chapter 10 tells how to configure the VPN on the Firebox side. You would just duplicate your settings if your doing option #1. Chapter 11 tells how to configure the VPN on the client side. This section would tell you how to configure the client software for option #2. Hope this helps.
