Question about D-Link AirPlus Xtreme G DI-624 Wireless Router (DI624RE)

1 Answer

DLink DI-624s - can't get Cisco VPN Client to connect.

Hi,

I have a Dlink DI-624s and have enabled both IPSEC and PPTP, but my Cisco VPN still does not connect.

Do I need to set up the Virtual Server for the DI-624s?

I tried to enable IPSEC but it'd wanted a Private IP. What is this Private IP - is it the IP of the network I want to connect to? Or is this the IP of my laptop with the Cisco VPN client?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Kind regards,
Nzmiche

The "Virtual Server" setting is designed to give the general public access to a network resrouce (web/ftp/media server) on your internal network. If your the VPN concentrator is external to your network (meaning you'll have to use the internet to connect to it), then you won't need to define a virtual server on the DI-624.

You'll just need to enable the IPSEC and PPTP VPN Passthrough which it sounds like you've already done this. I've run into some ISP's that block VPN connections out of their network. If you have the ability, try to directly connect your laptop into your cable/DSL modem in place of your router and see if you can make a VPN connection, if not contact your ISP, if you can then verify you enabled the VPN passthroughs because your router is blocking them.

GIve it a shot and let us know your results.

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)

I am running vista and using the dlink di-808hv router. i have set up a pptp connection. when i use ms vpn to connect, it connects but only limited connectivity. can you help?


Peer to peer tunneling protocal is what pptp is if its connecting a limited connectivity that means some of the ports are stull being blocked thus needing for you to use your machine in a demilierized zone so this will open all avilable ports to your VPN software. Also keep in mind not all ISP's will support PPTP so you may have to use a softvpn software. Thanks i hope this helps

Vpn site to site


you need to create an IPSec tunnel between the router and windows server 2003 (run secpol.msc). From the dlink router, you need to set the IP address of the VoIP gateway as part of the LAN that is included on the VPN tunnel. Since it is the server 2003 that has a static IP, you need to initiate the connection from the Dlink router.

Printing with Dlink DI-624S and VPN connection


I am guessing this VPN is something work related and not a VPN you setup yourself?? If that is the case your company's VPN access will not allow you to pass from there network back to yours which is why you are unable to print to your local home printer when connected to VPN. You might could run it by your IT staff and see if they will allow connection and help you set it up. If not then simply email the docs to yourself and then print them out after you are finished using VPN connection.

Hope this Helps

Cisco VPN Client won't connect


You'll want to enable the VPN transparency. In the router's administrative web interface, click the Security Tab, then the VPN Passthrough sub-tab. Cisco VPN's usually use IPSEC, so enable the IPSEC Pass-through and click "Save Settings". If this doesn't work enable the PPTP Pass-through as well and give that a shot.

VPN


the following is from a nice guide i found on the net, see if it works for you: First thing to check is whether your router has any settings for PPTP or IPsec "pass through". These are commonly found in Linksys routers but you may have to hunt around for them on other makes. All you need to do is enable the setting for the VPN protocol that you're using, reboot your router and, if you're lucky, the VPN connection will come right up. Note: Not all routers have these enables and the lack of them doesn't necessarily mean that you can't get VPN working. Open up that Firewall Still no connection? The next step is to try opening some ports in your router's firewall to get your VPN connection made. In each case, you'll need to open the specific ports (and protocol) to the IP address of the computer that you're running the VPN client on. NOTE that port mappings work with only one computer at a time. If you have multiple VPN clients that you need to connect, your router will have to support the VPN protocol that you're using without requiring ports opened. If you're using Microsoft's PPTP protocol, TCP port 1723 is the port you'll need to forward to allow PPTP control traffic to pass. Figure 2 shows the Forwarding screen on a Linksys BEFSR41 set to forward this port to a client with IP address 192.168.5.100. PPTP also needs IP protocol 47 (Generic Routing Encapsulation) for the VPN data traffic itself, but note that this is a required protocol, not a port. The ability to handle this protocol must be built into the router's NAT "engine"?which is true of most present-generation routers. IPsec-based VPN's need UDP port 500 opened for ISAKMP key negotiations, IP protocol 51 for Authentication Header traffic (not always used), and IP protocol 50 for the "encapsulated data itself. Again, the only "forwardable" item here is UDP port 500, which is also shown programmed in Figure 2 to the same LAN client machine?protocols 50 and 51 must be built into your router. Tip: Not all routers are created equal! Some allow only one VPN tunnel to be opened and used by a single client. Others support multiple tunnels, but with one client per tunnel. Unfortunately, most vendors don't make the VPN pass through capabilities of their products clear in their documentation, nor do they have support staff properly trained to provide this information either. In most cases, your only option is to try a router in your specific application, and make sure you can return it and get your money back if you can't get it working. Still not Working? Getting many IPsec-based VPN setups working can be a black art due to the wide variation in techniques used by various vendors. Although IPsec products have become more uniform as the technology matures, your company may use older, more proprietary products that may not be configured with NAT in mind, or require additional ports to be opened in your firewall.
