Site to site VPN problem between Netgear FVG318 and Sonicwall TZ170
Message 7 of I am using firmware version 1. Users are being able to successfully connect to the VPN; however, there are couple of problems: I solved the problem. I just bought and setup a RVW.

Can't get a VPN started on NETGEAR ProSafe VPN Firewall FVS338. Any idea why?

Thanks lot for your reply. A cable modem is in front of the Netgear box. To answer your questions: Message 6 of I tried changing those parameters but it did not seem to help. It will not connect again. Do I change both? Should the both be the same? Wouldn't the VPN try to reconnect once the SA has expired anyway, whether it's an hour or a few days? If it can't reconnect after 1 hour why would it be able to reconnect after a few days? Message 7 of Message 8 of Did you ever get an answer ; I mean besides a link to a technical document that I didn't find the answer in reading.

Message 9 of Message 10 of The main thing is to make sure that the lease times agree on both sides. You might try enabling keep-alives. This will cause a lot of trouble. If so, change your home network! I followed you advice but still no luck.

I tried monkeying with the dns settings to have them as you said was necessary here and still no luck. Everything looks very ok however. The vpn software says the connection is fine, the netgear router says IPsec SA connection is fine and the vpn log say that everything's ok. Again, everything looks ok but the vpn software says that there's no secured data exchange between the router and the vpn client and no pc in the domain can see the vpn client on a network browse and vice versa.

You haven't been responsive to my two questions: You will not see the client in your office network. But don't count on that.

I can easily ping the office network gateway the IP of the vpn router from the vpn client pc but not vice versa nor ping from any office network pc to the vpn client for that matter of course. I solved the problem. I got another Netgear prosafe vpn router of the same model.

It was easy as heck to get the vpn going then. You were right, but a second vpn router of the same type saved a lot of time configuring.

In less that an 30 mins I had a good vpn going and can see everything thoughtout the network on either side now. Thanks for your helpful advice! It help point me in the right direction! Experts Exchange Solution brought to you by Your issues matter to us.
