Optimize server to server VPN
I have a server to server VPN. Both ends are 3MB DSL with 800 KB
Are there parameters that should be altered to maximize performance.
I have already altered the MTU to 1492 in order to fix GroupWise MTA

Yes, in general. Look at tip #23 at the URL below.
For the VPN, you may have to reduce MTU even further for some apps.
Note that with 800k DSL, you probably will only get about 650K...FTP server on BorderManager server
Is there any reason *not* to have a secure ftp server running on the
same box we use for our BorderManager server? (We're out of public IP
addresses so can't set up a separate box.)
Basically we want the ftp server to only allow access to a volume on
another serer. Thanks!

Don't know th...Removing Server-to-Server VPN
I currently have two BorderManager 3.7 (Netware 6) servers providing a
Server to Server VPN between my two offices. I am investigating a
private line between the offices.
Each server also provides proxy/firewall services for their respective
offices. The Master VPN server provides Client to Site VPN services.
Each office has its own subnet. The slave office is partitioned and
the slave BMgr is master of that partition.
If I go with the private line, I will have a couple of Cisco routers
connecting the private line to each office.
Could each office retain its subnet and addres...Deleting 3rd Party S2S VPN Server Breaks Slave VPN Configuration For All Servers, eventually.
I thought I posted this weeks ago but after searching the forum I did
not find it. So here is the issue and the Official Novell Fix.
Setting up a 3rd Party VPN with BM 3.8.2 and NW 6.5.1. It worked great
after it was setup. But if you went to delete a 3rd Party slave VPN
server it may break another 3rd party slave. The only fix was to
completely remove all servers from the Site to Site vpn configuration.
Delete the Master site to site server. Create all new objects.
Basically, recreate it all from scratch.

Hey, new to the VPN thing ..
OK, we have a server to server VPN setup (between 2 sites).
Novell techs helped me setup the VPN (6 months ago) as a
Master to Master config. (site to site).
As they stated, it was best to have it setup as a Master to Master
config, so there would be less time in the creation of the link setup.
Both sides have a master and a slave configuration for this setup.
Question is, is that our connection (ike) seems to keep timing out,
and so the link dies. We do know that it is not the Internet link that
is dropping, but seems to be the VPN that is.

Quick question on VPNs. Finally got my Bordermanager VPN to work thru
my PIX firewall by being a little creative...by VPNing within a VPN.
To explain, the connection goes from my ISP > PIX 515 > Bordermanager
3.7 > Internal network.
I have enabled VPN on both the PIX and Bordermanager servers so I
connect to the PIX VPN and then to my Bordermanager VPN (within the
PIX VPN). The PIX vpn is darned quick, but connecting to my BMEE box
is almost too slow to consider useful. I can run programs, but drive
mappings come and go and launching any executable from the internal

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 ...Files copied server to server over VPN are corrupt
I'm not sure if this is a VPN problem. It may need to be in another forum.

Site A (T-1) is the main office. Sites B (cable) and C (DSL) are remote
Site A and Site B communicate with no problems and there are no file
However, we seem to have a problem with site C. If we copy TIF images
from the Novell 6.0 server at site C to a particular Novell 6 server at
site A, the files are copied, but cannot be read. They seem to be

Have followed Craigs book with regards to setting up a S2S VPN as
detailed above but have encountered an error which looks like it may be
a certificate issue?
The two logs of the handshake are listed below, if someone has the time
I would be grateful if you could have a look through and give me some
pointers as to either what is wrong or which side has the error, the
master or the slave.

I have a small client with a Novell 5.x server with about 35 clients,
of which are needing some sort of vpn access. Trying to figure out if
easier to setup border manager for vpn access on the server or simply
router that will provide vpn access. Which would be easier or more
effective in this scenario over a dsl connection. Any suggestions or
comments are appreciated.
I guess it depends a lot on cost. Do you already have BMgr? (A copy
that includes client-site VPN?) If so, just install that and

Summary: Proxy server detections for VPN users / proxy server switch
I'm using firefox on my work laptop computer, and are traveling once in
a while where I stay at hotels. When connecting to the Internet on
hotels or airports normally you will have to login via a homepage before
Internet access is possible. This means that my VPN connections will not
work, and therefore no connection to the proxy server. So I'll have to

we have an office in montreal and one in mississauga (cities a few hundred
miles apart). The montreal has a Novell 5.1 server at their location and
they connect to our BM3.8 server in mississauga. Since BM 3.8 uses the
novell client to login to the server in mississauga from montreal will the
montreal users be able to connect to their local server at the same time?
if so how is this accomplished?
