    Hi guys,

    Im currently in the process of testing an IPSec VPN solution to allow our remote workers access into certain resources on our domain. I'm getting connected fine, but then can't access any resources or ping either way. The device in question obtaining a virtual IP in the same subnet as other systems but no luck.

    I've read something about creating a second private network on the interface im connecting too, but having no or little real world experience with VPN's im having a hard time!

    Can anyone help me or give me an pointers? :cry:

    We have them and we use them for the IPSEC but I had nothing to do with the setup. I'll ask the guy who did come monday if you dont have an answer.

    Sorry I cant be more help.

    I think there's an "Optional LAN" or Optional Network" something along the lines you can use... I haven't configured a Watch guard in a while, but I vaguely remember something like that...

    Only worked on a couple of Watchguards over the years but perhaps check the log files? Might tell you why the the packets are being dropped.

    Not ever configured a Watchguard from scratch, but many moons ago, I built a Site to Site VPN tunnel, I think you have to specify the IPSEC Subnet is Trusted for access to the LAN, or something along those lines mate.
