inetcfg and C2S vpn
Nw6.0 and BMsp1
I am trying to setup a Client to site IKE based VPN on a server that had a
legacy VPN setup. The problem is, after setting up the VPN server and
service in Imanager, nothing loads No vpmaster,Authgw or Ike.
I suspect that the reason revolves aroung the fact that the legacy tunnel
still shows up in inetcfg. I can see no other reason why it wont load. The
legacy config has been removed with vpncfg. and it shows that there is no
VPN servers configured, yet the tunnel still shows up in inetcfg.
Is there a way to remove this entry in inetcfg? With out causing downti...BM VPN site - to
Can i use BM 3.7 or 3.8 to create a site-to-site VPN with a BM server
on one site an a hardware VPN device (Cisco, Nortel) on the other site
Or does site-to-site VPN always need to be 2 BM servers ?

3.7 is BMgr only. 3.8 should work with any IPSEC VPN.
...C2S VPN , BM 3.8 server
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 ...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...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.
...BM VPN client (C2S) w/Cisco 3005
Anyone tried to set up a C2S VPN using the BM 3.8 Client to a Cisco 3005?
Any suggestions, comments, help would be appreciated.
Novell has done it, and I think have documented it somewhere, probably
Easiest way would probably be to use preshared secret, but X.509
certificate mode should also work. (Somewhat complicated to set up).

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
Client can connect and authenticate with eDirectory user/
password to BM server and I can ping the internal LAN
(172.16.x.x), BUT after 10 to 15 seconds a windows pops up
and says "Server is not responding. 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.
...NW 6.5 and BM 3.8 C2S VPN
Here is the setup that I currently have, and the problems I'm experiencing.
I have one NW 6.5 SP2 file sever, BM 3.8 patched up to BM38FP3B, the SECUDP6A security update for E-Directory, and NMSRV235 NMAS update to E-Directory as per the Current patch list on Craig's web site. Here are some of the things that I have seen on the server "IKE" screen

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

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

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....C2S VPn on BM 3.8 behind a Efficient 5930 gateway(firewall/router)

I have a customer, they have a small Netware deployment (100 Users), and
like the Novell Technologies.
They are now looking to provide their own internet access (currently hosted)
Therefore they are going to need a Proxy server and a VPN server.
Cisco salesman has been in and told them the best option is to use a
Cisco VPN (I guess this only does VPN and not Proxy but I am not sure of
Was just wondering if anyone had any views, whether to use CISCO vpn or BM.
So far I can think of...
1) I think that BM will be cheaper?
