I have a Windows XP machine that causes the Sonicwall router to lock up when I try to log on to the domain. RRS feed

  • Question

  • The computer logs into a domain and server that is located in another building - uses a VPN through the SonicWall. Whenever I try to log this user in to the domain - the SonicWall locks up and has to be rebooted. The system in question never does log in to the domain, and the SonicWall will continue to lock up unless this machine is shut off or removed from the network.

  • You will have to have someone start doing some diagnostic investigation.  The is no simple answer to your question.  The problem could be caused by a multitude of reasons.

    You would probably better off seeking help at SonicWALL forums https://forum.sonicwall.com/ or start at the Support page http://o-www.sonicwall.com/us/en/support.html

    It is much more likely you will encounter many more people that are familiar with SonicWALL there than you will here.

  • Thanks for the reply, but it has nothing to do with the SonicWall. Thought it was at first, and changed out the unit.

    I was mostly wondering if there could be something corrupt in the XP machine that would have it sending out some sort of invalid packets, and if there is a way to do something to fix that. I know it's not a virus (scanned clean with a commercial antivirus package) , or hardware (I moved the hard drive to a different machine)

    I suppose I will likely just punt on this one - I have never seen anything like it - and I suspect now, that no one else has either.
