Bluefire VPN to Juniper SSG5 firewall

Hello,

I am working on a project to connect an at&t Tilt device running Windows Mobile 6.0 Professional to a Juniper SSG5 firewall using an IPSec VPN. I am unsure of how to configure the SSG5 for this type of VPN connection and was wondering if anyone out there has had any experience with this type of configuration?

 

All help will be greatly appreciated.

Hi,

 

I havent had any experience with that particular device, but it sounds like you are trying to do a remote vpn connection where the user can connect from where ever they are. If that is the case you might want to have a look and the juniper documentation http://www.juniper.net/techpubs/software/screenos/screenos6.1.0/index.html

 

Andy have a look at the dialup vpn, will show you how to set up a vpn for a remote user.

 

What are you going to use for an IPSec client on the mobile device??

 

Regards

Re: Bluefire VPN to Juniper SSG5 firewall

I think that mobile 6 has a client built in but i dont know what it is like to try and get it working with the nescreen.

 

I remembered about a vpn client that you can get for mobile

From what i heard it is quite good, but that was awhile ago. From the notes it says it is compatibile with Netscreen devices, you can download a free trial and then its not much to purchase if you like it and it works.

 

Hope this helps

Re: Bluefire VPN to Juniper SSG5 firewall

Just realised that you are using a bluefire vpn, completely missed that.....teach me not to read properly.

 

Do you have the documentation for the bluefire vpn software for setting up the vpn connection. Will help me understande what it can set and then I can tell you what you need to set on the Netscreen device.

Re: Bluefire VPN to Juniper SSG5 firewall

Andy,

Thank you for your responses. I am just getting back to this project and reviewing your posts. I will take a look and get back to you on this.

 

I am also going to take a look at the VPN client you mentioned and see how that compares to Bluefire.

 

Regards,

Richard
