To VPN users:
I am wondering if anyone is having some of the same issues that I am having?
I have noticed that my VPN tunnels have been dropping quite frequently.
They are quite storborn to get back up. Once I have them backup they may
run for serveral days or a hour or two. I have been very busy and under the
weather and have not spent the time in the logs that I need too. I am
running tunnels between the following hardware types: Symantec 320,
Symantec VPN100, Netgear FV318, Linksys VPN endpoint.
The one major sticking point for me is setting up a tunnel between dynamic
endpoints. Has anyone build dynamic tunnels with this type of client? This
woild be a customer on the end of the Netgear FV318 and a handful of clients
running a VPN Client? Has anyone tested any freeware VPN clients. I can't
get the TAU client to work and I have spent 8 hours at 2 different sites
trying to get it to work. I need to find a solution to be able to provide
support to these persons on a secure vpn connection.
After developying a FV318 at a customer site recently it has made look
closely at the use of M0n0Wall just to a few of the advanced features the
firewall has in it. For now M0n0Wall is winning that battle.
I have learned quite a bit from all my research, and FREENAS has a feature
that we need to build in. They are adding LCD support. That would give use
ciritical status on the display that we could use. I hope we will add that
feature into M0n0Wall soon.
