Sonic Wall Global VPN client


  • Hi, we have a ISA Server 2006 Standard.  I'm trying to setup a SonicWall Global VPN client from a PC internally to access an external network.  Following this article http://www.isaserver.org/articles/IPSec_Passthrough.html
    got me connected, but I'm not receiving an IP addr.  It kept indicating "acquiring network address" and stays there forever. Can anyone help pls?

  • hi,

    have a look in the isa realtime log to see what gets blocked or consult the sonicwall documentation to see which ports must be opened.

    Thank you for the post.

    My client type is Web Proxy and Firewall..
    ISA Log does not say anything there is not anything to find in ISA Logs that which ports is stop.
    I have allowed IKE Client UDP 500 and IPSec NAT-T Client UDP 4500 as recommend by sonic wall documentation.
    If I do not use ISA Server I connect successfully but when using ISA server I'm not receiving an IP address.  It kept indicating "acquiring network address" and stays there forever.

    One more interesting thing if I can allow all outbound traffic than I still facing same issue
    any suggestion?
