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.

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.

In the rules, you will need to create a new rule that allows your VPN subnets access to you office LAN, and then on your office network gateway, add a route for your VPN subnet pointing back to your checkpoint firewall.

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 :)

DI 524 Router Not able to connect to office VPN on Wireless

I have the same model router at home, just checked the settings, you should be able to pass through the router with a normal vpn connection.

If you use a special VPN client, like a CheckPoint Secure VPN client, the router might block it. Also you might want to ask your office's sys admin if you are not blocked by the firewall or something similar. Your office's sys admin will prolly solve your problem since he knows your work network's configuration and setup and how to connect to it.

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.
