or to a BM VPN server?

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.

If you do not know the software (for symbian mobile phones) see:
This client seems to be very wide adaptable to different Ipsec VPN
authentication and encryption methods. But I do not know which methods
are implemented on the BM side, so I cannot judge from the
documentation, if this can work or is clearly impossible.
If it could be made working, that would be a really nice thing.

On plain XP connecting to Internet via ADSL router I can get MTU (tested
with TCP Optimizer) of 1492 - what matches the settings on the router
As soon as I install BM VPN client the MTU lowers to 1374
Is that normal?

We have always given our laptop users the Novell BorderManager VPN client
(WinXP Pro)to access various services. We now have iFolder 2.1 available to
them. However, when they install the iFolder client, on reboot, they are
informed that a problem has occured with the installion the iFolder client
and to retry the install. This doesn't get resolved.
Is it possible to run both?. I know the VPN client is not required for
remote access to iFolder, however, our users need the VPN client to access
I have a Border Manager 3.7 server with a Site to Site and Client to
VPN enabled. The VPN client can access all information of the WAN
for the site that is accross the Site to Site VPN. The client to site
configured to encrypt this network. From the internal network the
site accross the VPN site to site works fine.
Any help would be appreciated
This is really working as designed. If you want a vpn client to
the other site, you'll need to enable client-site on the other BM

We have a strange situation at one of our customers.
There is a C2S connection on a BM3.9 server. There are 2 PC running XP
in the remote location. This setup runs properly since 2-3 years.
Yesterday a new PC, Windows 7 ()32bit) was installed in the remote
office. Tried to do VPN connection with VPN client 3.9.2 from the
Windows & machine, but we got error (Failed to get DH public value). But
after this the old XP machines were also unable to connect.
After a server restart the windows XP machines are able to login

I found a situation which is really odd.
It relates to inabilty of VPN client to be "told" to use specific connection
from clients workstation.
It probably does not impact many people, but if it was selectable it would

Due to my ISP fault that does not work, as they lose part of the UDP packet.

IPsec compliant and can be configured to use the same parameters as BM.

...MS VPN Client to BM38 VPN Server?
On win2k and on XPHome I create a network connection which is a VPN connection, then try to do certificate authentication to the BM 38 VPN server. I have the Novell VPN client on the same machine which can authenticate with the same certificate. The MS client returns an Error 800: unable to establish connection, maybe the network is unreachable, maybe your security settings are wrong.
With the Novell Client I pick exactly the certificate I want to use to authenticate. I can't find that option in the MS client, I can select a Trusted Root (so I had to export the Trusted Root and add it ...Cisco VPN or BM VPN open question..
I have a customer, they have a small Netware deployment (100 Users), and

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.
