BEFVP41, The Greenbow VPN Cient, Vonage and Windows Firewall

Discussion in 'Cisco/Linksys Wireless Routers' started by PhilScarbrough, Feb 13, 2005.

  1. 1.) I have A Comcast modem connected to a Vonage (Motorola VOIP VT1000) phone adaptor that is then connected to a BEFVP41 router + 4 PC’s. I’m trying to connect to the BEFVP41 remotely using “TheGreenBow VPN Client v2.50.019†software. I can not establish a tunnel with the Vonage box in the mix. If I remove Vonage box, I can establish a tunnel to the BEFVP41. Do you know how to make this work with out putting the Vonage box on the LAN side of the BEFVP41? The remote BEFVP41 LAN address is and has a Static WAN IP address assigned to the Vonage box.

    2.) Once my remote PC establishes a tunnel (without Vonage), I’m NOT able to view network resources behind the BEFVP41 with out disabling the Windows XP SP2 Firewall on the PC I’m trying to connect to, behind the BEFVP41 router. At the remote PC, I can leave the Windows Firewall turned on. Is there a way to adjust a setting in the Windows Firewall that would permit me to turn on the Firewall for the PC’s behind the BEFVP41? Or should I not worry about the Firewall and leave it off? I feel like my pants are down with it off.

    3.) I’m using the trial version of The GreenBow client software. Is this my best choice to use with the BEFVP41 or is there something else that would give more bang for the buck?

    Thanks, Phil[align=justify]

    The Windows XP SP2 firewall is rather limited in how you open up ports, IP addresses etc. If you must use a software firewall try replacing it with ZoneAlarm. If the PC your trying to VPN from has a static IP address then it's just a case of adding this to the trusted zone in ZA.

    Haven't used the Greenbow VPN client, for client to site VPN's using the BEFVP41 I've always used SSH Sentinel. SSH seem to have sold this product to SafeNet who've subsequently discontinued it so I'm not sure you can still get it from anywhere :?

    This may or may not be applicable, but have your tried running a cross-over cable between your Linksy and Motorola hardware?
