Router is blocking my VPN client

I am using the Nortel connectivity client ver 486.116 to VPN to my job but my router is blocking the connection. If I turn off the firewall, I can connect with no issues. How can I resolve this without disabling the firewall on the router.

Hello. It appears my router is blocking VPN access to the office server. I can connect using the ethernet cable so have isolated the problem to the router firewall. How do I get around this? Thanks


Hi
I will make a couple of assumptions on you setup. First, you have some type of highspeed internet. You have a retail type router/firewall plugged into your internet modem. You are using a VPN Client software installed on a PC or Laptop. By stating that when you connected using your Ethernet cable, you were plugged directly into the Internet modem.

Basically, what you have here is a configuration issue with your Router/Firewall. I use the Cisco VPN Client Software from home. This software uses UDP over TCP port 10000. Your VPN Client will use something along this line as well. So, you need to do one of two things here. Determine what Protocol and Port your VPN software uses. Login into you Router/Firewall and add that to your outbound allowed traffic. Or login into your Router/Firewall and configure it to allow all outbound traffic.

If you are not sure how to do this, the documentation that came with your Router should contain a Tech Support number to call. They can walk you through this in short order. Otherwise, post your EXACT make and model of your Router/Firewall and I will try to get the information for you.

Hope this helps.

How do I setup our router to allow VPN client?


you are trying to connect to the VPN client.
Which VPN software you are using ?
To connect to the VPN , you will need to trigger ports on the router.
open the set up page of the router and trigger the ports on the router. The port numbers will be. 1723 , 10000-20000 , 443-447 , 500. Also reduce the MTU settings to 1365.
Disable the Block Internet request, you will find this option under security tab.
Make sure that the firmware of the router is up to date.

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.

Nortel Contivity VPN client?


Nortel Contivity will work with the your D-Link router, however its functionality depends on the authentication type (AH will not work), NAT compatibilty mode, and disabling keep alives on the server. Contact your Network Administrator to find out how your VPN is configured. Step 1 Verify that you are using the latest version of firmware on your router. Step 2 Login to the Web Management for your router by entering its IP address (192.168.0.1) in your web browser. The default username is admin, and the password is blank. Step 3 Click the Advanced Tab to access the Virtual Server Settings. There is a list of pre-defined Virtual Server Rules towards the bottom of the page. Find the IPSec Rule. Click the pen and paper icon to edit its settings. Enable the rule, enter the IP address of the computer attempting to connect to the VPN in the Private IP field, then Apply the changes. Step 4 Create a new Virtual Server entry. Name the Virtual Server, "NortelVPN". Enter the IP address of the computer attempting to connect to the VPN in the Private IP field. For the Protocol Type, select Both. Enter 9550 for both the Public and Private Ports. Set the Schedule to always, then Apply the settings. Step 5 Access the Tools Page, then click the Misc button. Disable IPSec Pass-through, then click Apply. If the VPN Server is properly configured to work with clients behind NAT routers you should be able to connect to the VPN.
