Netscreen 5gt L2tp-IPSEC & Windows 7

Hi all, I've been researching this issue for sometime now and just wanted to confirm that their is no possible configuration available to use the windows 7 native vpn connection to connect to the vpn tunnel. We "MUST" use a 3rd party tool.

 

Can someone please confirm this. Searches on the internet show that some people claim to have gotten it to work with the windows 7 without the need for 3rd party software.

 

I'm running code 6.2 on the 5gt......

 

Thanks for all responses

Hi,

 

This configuration is described in KB16075 and in the Application Note KB10939.

Kind regards,

I am having the same problem. I have only basic understanding of IPsec (I am a molecular biologist, not a networking specialist). I would be extremely grateful for somebody to help me set up a Netscreen 5gt L2tp-IPSEC Windows 7 tunnel (ideally via remote desktop). I understand that I cannot expect people to help me for free, and therefore I shall be happy to pay you (at the rate of 50 US$/hr) for your efforts!

Hi,

 

If you are ready to spend money you'd better purchase NCP VPN client. It makes something about a two hour payment. NCP VPN client is a nice product, very popular and good supported. Besides, you will find a lot of step-by-step instructions for configuring it.

Kind regards,

Hi Adriano,

 

I always recommend to use the site-to-site ipsec if the user is always working from the same location, e.g. from a home network. It is much easier to configure and troubleshoot and you do not need to install any additional SW. Do you need an additional HW device to terminte ipsec on it? Very likely - not. The vast majority of residential ADSL customers in Switzerland get ADSL routers which support site-to-site ipsec. So if you are a Sunrise customer, you have probably a Zyxel Prestige device. An older Zyxel may be a box without ipsec VPN functionality but it's not a problem to replace it with a newer one. First of all you should clarify which device is installed on the remote side. Configuring a Netscreen-to-Zyxel VPN is not a complex task.

Kind regards,
Edouard
