BM 3.8 VPN C2S with ActivCard


After upgrading BM3.6 with VPN C2S and ActivCard One to 3.8 I can authenticate VPN without entering token password using backward compability. In the VPN-client 3.8.7  readme -file it states: The ActiveCard token
          authentication method will work if the ActiveCard
          token method is configured for the user in

The only method i can find is the Universal smart card. Is there a way to make my ActivCard One tokens  to work with BM 3.8 VPN?  If not, whitch tokens work with 3.8 NMAS/VPN client and BM 3.8?

Thank you in advance.

I have not used ActivCard and VPN login, but I have been told that there is an ActivCard 
patch/update required to make it work on 3.8, and the update is available from ActivCard.  (And I 
have been told it is not free).

BM 3.5 to BM 3.8 w/VPN
Bordermanager 3.5 server on Netware 5.1 providing firewall and proxy services for users on internal network. This box is also acting as the Master VPN server with multiple site-to-site VPN links to BM 3.5 slave servers. Primary Goal Replace the existing Bordermanager 3.5 master VPN server hardware with a new server running Bordermanager 3.8 on Netware 6.0. It is possible to have both servers online during migration. Must minimize disruption to firewall, proxy & VPN services. Secondary Goal: No changes (or minimial changes only) to the slave servers running BM 3.5. (T...

BM 3.8 sp2 VPN c2s
We have installed a NW 6 SP4 server, with BM 3.8 SP2, and are trying to get VPN C2S working. We do have Craig Johnson's book as a guide, but we are still experiencing the following problems. 1.) We are not able to login into the Netware server, we receive the following Netware login attempt failed, user is not logged in to Netware(this happens after about two minutes of trying) We thought that we had this fixed when we added a host entry into the PC's hosts file. This worked when the PC was connected to the internal side of the network(at least on our one test PC), however still...

C2S VPN , BM 3.8 server
Hello, I had posted a question regarding this issue before, but nothing ever really came of it until now, because we have a customer who is needing this issue fixed. We have 1 server that runs NWSB 6.5 sp2. It has all the company files, information ,etc, basically everyone logs into this server. We want to run a C2S VPN server on it. I have the general setup, and install done. However when I log in to the VPN server using C2S, I can't get to any of the volumes or for that matter the BM server itself. In my testing lab this wasn't an issue because I had two or more servers ...

Can I import VPN setting from BM 3.7 into BM 3.8
Hi all, we have a Netware 6.5 server with Bordermanager 3.7. (after migration from NW 5.1) This worked fine for a year, but now the server abends several times a day. Bordermanager is only used for Proxy and VPN. I want to replace the server with a new installed NW6.5 with BM 3.8. Can I quickly and easy import my current VPN settings from BM 3.7? Greetz, Erwin hi Erwin, You can't really "import" the VPN from a server to another one, unless you image it (but at the end you would have an identical server, i.e. 3.7). The safest way is to reconfigure the VPN in t...

BM 3.8 C2S VPN Server is not responding
Hello, I have some problems with VPN Client-to-site. I installed BorderManager 3.8 with SP1a on a NW 6.5 server and configure C2S in backward comp. mode (VPNCFG and rules with iManager).

Connection will be disconnected." and the client disconnects ! Problems occurs with different Client OS (W2K, XP) and different VPN Clients (3.7 and 3.8.x). Thank for help. ...

BM 3.8 C2S VPN
Ok... I've been working with BM VPN's since the beginning of their time, and frankly, I have never had the kind of difficulties that I have had since BM3.8. The Client to Site VPN config seems pretty routine and straightforward, but either I am missing something very obvious and simple, or I need to change careers. Out of 4 C2S VPN installs, I have 1 that is working properly. If I try to duplicate that setup anywhere else, I get mixed results. All are running on NetWare SBS v6.5, and are using various methods of connecting to he Internet (From T1 to DSL to Cable ...

VPN 3.6 slave to VPN 3.8 master
I have more or less gone through what I could to set this up. I exported the BM 3.8 master encryption key (minfo.vpn) and imported that to the BM 3.6 slave without any issue. I then created the slave (sinfo.vpn) file. I had setup the vpn tunnel ip's as and when these were both masters, clients could access either one perfectly. We know the VPN's work. I changed 1 to a slave, but I halted what I was doing as I noted that the master and slave networks both are using 192.168.0.x for the private IP's. Questions: 1. Can a 3.6 slave talk to a 3.8 master?...

C2S BM 3.3 Not Working. AUTHGW cant acquire VPN keys
Hello, I've been messing around with this New NBM 3.8. I configured as C2S using the new iManger method. Everything was working Great. NMAS and Certificates. However It did not work in the way i had hoped So i decided to just stay with the Legacy vpn to avoid having to update vpn clients on 130 PCs in 20 cities.. I attempted to delete the VPN server and C2S configuration in iManager. But it would not delete. I was patient for about 2 hours then decided to remove it manually. I deleted many entries under the "Other Tab" in console one. All the ones starting with vpn....
