Re: 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.

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.
Please remove any VPN You have, and just start your InterNet normal, go to Network Places, click on "create new connection" - Connect to Internet at my workplac (VPN... etc,) - Next - "use my internet connection" - address: vpn.kongshare.com
then next - next - finish.
Here we are, it will work and never throw you out.
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.
I hade the same problem with mv CiscoVPN 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.
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
Step 1 Go into the web-based configuration on the router (enter 192.168.0.1 in your web brower). Enter username (admin) and password (blank).
Step 2 Click on Advanced at the top and then click on Applications on the left side.
Step 3 Check Enable
Step 4 Enter a name (i.e. Nortel).
Step 5 Enter 500 for Trigger Port (500 - 500).
Step 6 Select Both for Trigger Type.
Step 7 Enter 500 for Public Port.
Step 8 Select Both for Public Type.
Step 9 Click Apply and then click on Continue when prompted.
