IPSEC VPN through firewall i'm working with this lady on some contract stuff for her law office and she had this guy working there on IT stuff before and setup this netgear vpn firewall. Well, half of her employees work from home and need access to their files that could consist of patient records and other confidential info. The VPN idea was fine until her employees started buying home firewall/routers. Wow, what a pain in the ass.. i can get all the workstations connecting to her office from her employees homes (behind the firewall) and it authenticates and everything, but will NOT let anybody access any resources. I can't FTP, PING, or telnet to ANYTHING. Everything works just fine if i disconnect the router, and plug the clients into the cable modem directly. I tried everything almost. I made sure the home routers allowed IPSEC passthru and that ftp was allowed on the incoming connections. I also tried throwing the local ip address of the pc on the router's DMZ... still nothing. It's really throwing me for a loop, and all she needs to have is her employees access files securely over the internet. I'm about 1 nerve away from just installing cygwin on her server with OpenSSH, forwarding port 22 through the router at the office and calling it a fucking day. They already have SFTP clients. It sucks cuz she already spent the money on the hardware... what do you think i should do? Is there anything else to try with the VPN side of things?
