This is my 3rd site to site installation of SSG5s' working over VPN. This time however, I've come across a bit of a problem with one of the units.
Basically, the installation at the satellite office was not successful due to some sort of DNS problem with one of the routers in particular. All of the interfaces are default ; ie 0/0 untrusted, 0/2-6 trusted. I double checked that I had correct settings for gateway, DNS, etc but was unable to resolve any hostnames by FQDN. What was odd though is I was able to ping by IP address, even resolve hostname with IP:80 in browser. My feeling was that the router is defective so I flashed it with the latest stable firmware hoping that would resolve the problem. The flashing was successful but after that I could not access the device through webui, so I attempted a reset with the pin - got the red light etc and it supposedly reset. Now I cannot access the device at all.
As a note, the unit that I setup at our home office took less than a minute to configure and is working great. The only difference was that we have a dedicated DNS server here, as opposed to at our satellite office where I was hoping to use the SSG5 to handle DNS.
Solved! Go to Solution.
