Question about Belkin N1 Vision Router

1 Answer

Belkin N1 Vision (Part # F5D8232-4) and VPN problem

I'm having difficulty connecting to my work network with the Nortel Contivity vpn client. I have asked the it guys at work to get me the ports needed to have open on the router, but for security reasons they will not give this information to anyone. This is what Belkin wanted me to do, but I can't get that info. I have tried many searches on the net to see what ports I need to open, and have tried all suggestions. I even put the pc in the DMZ to see if it would work. It didn't. I'm open to any suggestions.

I really like this router, but if I can't get this to work, I will need to go back to my D-Link (which does work with the VPN).

I hade the same problem with mv Cisco VPN v5.0 and Belkin N1 router (F5D8231-4 v4...). I could only solve the problem with a new firmware (f5d8231-4 ww v4.00.18 at http://www.belkin.com/uk/support/article/?lid=enu&pid=F5D8231uk4&aid=9419&scid=0 ). I think this is a general firmware issue at Belkin. Good luck.

    I had to send my original in for repair because it started to reboot and lose the settings on a daily basis. I returned it and Belkin sent me a replacement which I promptly sold on ebay. I purchased a D-Link DGL-4500 and haven't had any issues from it.

SOURCE: 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.

Nortel 1050 and BSR222 VPN Connection


1.  What you have is a "software settings" in several  locations that require "exact entries".  Without us seeing what  "entries" are being asked by the programs or what data needs to be inserted by the routers at each location, there is no way anyone could possibly solve your problem long distance.

2.  The basic generic information was supplied to you at another website you visited but obviously did not help you.  I appreciate you having the confidence by asking anyone here to guide you but I think you need to have some one physically there to fix the problem.  If someone here knows the answer and can solve this problem by all means jump in.

3. My solution is for you to look in the yellow pages for your town where you live under "networks" or "computer networks".  Some one locally should be able to come out and solve this for you.  VPN networks at this level require a "hands on" solution unfortunately and not a "cook book" answer.  Get one field wrong, you will spend days troubleshooting it.

This is the best solution for your problem in this case.  Anything else would be a great disservice to you.

Firewall ports need to be opened. Log into router and turn on DMZ to your computer. Find your IP address on your machine 192.168.X.X and put that into DMZ settings or open up appropriate ports for VPN

Belkin N1 F5D8231-4 V3000


are you running the Cisco VPN client from home, where this Belkin is your gateway and connecting to say your work?
If so, have a look in the settings of the Belkin to see if you can enable VPN Pass-through.

Try disabling some of the firewall functions on the belkin to isolate the issue and turn the rest back on.

If for some reason this model doesn't work even after the above, try changing the VPN client's connection settings,there are only two to choose from... (click modify on your connection entry, go to the Transport tab > then choose from:
IPSec over TCP and IPSec over UDP (port 10000)

The problem looks with the Nortel VPN. VPN software blocks all other Internet connections when started. This way they create a secure, encrypted tunnel from your pc to the destination pc and does not allow the other connections -Firefox, Chrome etc- to perform. The non performing Internet applications mean less threats online (e.g. nobody can exploit a flaw in Firefox and reach your VPN connection).

If the problem is that the browsers do not function even after you stop the VPN connection, it may be that the VPN software is still running in the background. You can make Ctrl + Shift + Esc to bring up the running processes and see if the VPN is running in the background. If yes, turn it off.

Nortel 1050 & BSR222 VPN Connection


If you want to have a dynamic IP at the remote site you can forget about it, I placed a support call to Nortel and they told me that even if the NAT traversal option is there in the BSR222 they do not support it!!!
I was able to use a bsr222 with a static ip accepting connection from linksys using dynamic, this works.
see some example doc at www.chbr.info/linksys_bsr222.zip
