Question about WatchGuard Technologies FireBox SOHO 6 Firewall

Watchguard site to remote offices

We are trying to create a VPN connection between our two offices using Watchguard Fire box Firewall.
Our equipment configuration is.
Watchguard Firebox 700 with Fixed P address & Watchguard Firebox core x550e with Dynamic IP Address

Could you please inform me the required settings we need to make on each of these Fire Walls.
The Firebox (with dynamic Ip address) will be the instigator of the VPN tunnel.

How connect cisco 5015 vpn with barracuda linkbalancer 330

Your Internet gateway <--- primary router

Port #1 on primary router <---> VPN server
Port #2 on primary router <--> Load Balancer
Load Balancer <--> web-server #1
Load Balancer <--> web-server #2
Load Balancer <--> web-server #3

VPN traffic enters your network, through the router to the VPN server, and then VPN-server back through the router to your internal servers. Web-traffic goes through the Load Balancer, for distribution to the collection of servers.

How to connect my MSSQL server through VPN by using PPTP

192.168.1.X is a local ip address ,, i trust that thhe vpn is in seperate places and is done with the wan ip over an internet connection?????

OK maybe the problem isnt on your side but the main office building,, when connecting , have someone looked for repeated attemps to connect by observing the fire wall,, if it appears to be blocked byu the firewall simply diasable any and try it out.. If it works then all you need to do is set the firewall correctly..

I was reading the ip address in your original post and those are local address,s are you certin the VPN is correct ???? did you use the correct STATIC IP ADDRESS ASSIGNED BY YOUR ISP??

Site to site VPN between Checkpoint UTM 1 R62 and Cisco pix /Netscreen

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.

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.
