VPN - DNS Issues

Good Morning all.

If this is straight forward then I apologise for wasting your time.

I have inherited a network that uses BM 3.8 and has VPN setup.

When I connect using the VPN Client I get a connection and can log in.
This goes through fine and runs the login scripts.

The issue that I have is that DNS does not work so I cannot see any of
the windows servers.

Is this a straight forward "fix"? Am I missing something easy?

Thanks in advance.

iManager | BorderManager | VPN Services | Client-to-site | select your
VPN Service | DNS/SLP Configuration Tab

In there you can enter what DNS info must be handed out to the client

Hope that this is what you are looking for :-)

bordermanager vpn issue
Hi there. background is that we have 3 netware 6.5 sp6 servers. A bordermanager , mail and file/print server. there was a problem recently with the bordermanager server ( version 3.8sp5) which resulted in server having to be reloaded. the server was removed from the tree along with all certificates etc.. and reinstalled as was bordermanager. The sys volume was restored from tape but there was no configuration of bordermanager when restore was done. Is there any way of restoring this configuration (it was configured previously with client to site) from a tape backup. Thanks Fr...

Bordermanager vpn vs Cisco router vpn etc
I have a small client with a Novell 5.x server with about 35 clients, many of which are needing some sort of vpn access. Trying to figure out if it is easier to setup border manager for vpn access on the server or simply get a router that will provide vpn access. Which would be easier or more cost effective in this scenario over a dsl connection. Any suggestions or comments are appreciated. Thanks Paul 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 configure it. As for using ...

Assistance with BorderManager VPN
WE have been running a BM VPN and firewall configuration for awhile with no issue. I have Dynamic NAT configured on my private interface and had it disabled on the public one. This server is primarily used for VPN access. Now I want to set up a Gwia to send email itself (no mail proxy) but receive via the proxy. I have no problem getting it to use teh proxy both ways. I can get this working if I enable dynamic nat on the public interface and disable it on my private, but that breaks my internal VPN connectivity. Any suggestions? lardens@nospam.net wrote: > WE have be...

vpn to vpn connection question
Hello: I've been asked to look into a vpn to vpn connection with a third party vpn server connection to our bm38sp2 vpn. Last week I had asked if this was possible and the answer was yes (but). Currently I have our vpn up and running to allow me secure access from home for remote management. The vpn is setup as the master vpn server. Now, if I try to connect to a third party vpn, will our server be a client in this case (I assume so)? If so, how does this impact our current setup as a master server? Thanks in advance, Chris. PS. Others have suggested (strongly) to si...

Where might I find/configure a log of who connects to our VPN, whether or not they login to Netware once connected, etc. The login to Netware portion is relatively unimportant, but I would like to track basic information like remote IP, username, connect time, disconnect time, etc. Netware 6.5, BorderManager 3.8/SP4/IR3. Client is 3.8.11 for all remote users. We currently have two working VPNs - different servers, different OU's. TIA. -S- I don't know if this has changed in later versions of BM but this is how I monitor activity in BM 3.7. Open NWADM...

BorderManager VPN
Hi, I have a customer who is looking for a VPN solution (No more details yet...) Anyhow they have Border Manager 3.8 for proxy. However another site of theirs uses ISA. I know very little about either products. and would like to know peoples views? is BM a good product for VPN, are their better 3rd Party products? Thanks Hi, I use BM vpns all over the place & rate them highly. The 3.8 release was a major step forward as we now use the ipsec standard for site to site transport & can now talk to any other industry standard ipsec vpn endpoint. Client to...

legacy vpn + new vpn
Hi, I am running a bordermanager nw6 3.7 server configured as a master vpn server. The slave is also a nw6 3.7 server and is in another country. Now we need to put another slave to this vpn, however w'd like to do that with bordermanager 3.8. The question is if we update this server from 3.7 to 3.8, will the legacy vpn run without a problem, while 3.7 on the other side is running. (I think this will be no problem, correct me if I am wrong) On the other hand I want to configure a new master vpn on the same server by use of imanager. The other slave will be the new company. I...

pcanywhere?!?!?! what kind of encryption does that do? not much AFAIK best to use something that encrypts the traffic I have an SME server (e-smith.org Linux) on my cable modem that is my firewall, webserver, email server, router, NAT, etc.... Been using for years, no problems, very secure. The SME has pptp VPN (128bit) built in. works like a charm, (not as secure as 3DES) I routinely nmap my home server and my work server running checkpoint and my home server gets a higher difficulty rating, much higher, FWIW. you could then use pcanywhere thru the tunnel, this is how I ssh into...

I have BM 3.7, I can authenticate, but can't log in to Netware "Tree or server can't be found".

If I'm using VPN on an unsecured wireless connection can someone see my files if I have file sharing on? It depends on the VPN service, if you are using the Standard Sharing Ports & they are not Encrypted Everyone can see all your files & gain access to them.

We are currently using a Cisco VPN 5001 concentrator authenticating to a Cisco Secure Radius Server. I do not manage this hardware/software. I authenticate just fine to the organization itself but as in any organization, the organization spans multiple subnets, networks, etc. The dilemma I am having is logging into my server once I get authenticated. I have a Novell client installed but I cannot login to the server because it does not find it -- here I'm listing the server name, server tree and context. I've also tried mapping drives to the server by IP addres...

I am about to install VPN services with BorderManager 3.8 and have been reading some of the documentation. Can someone please explain to me the concept of tunneling and it's implementation with BM as this seems to be one of steps to setting up VPN. Any help is appreciated, as this concept is very new to me. Cheers, hi, tunneling is a process for which IP packets are encapsulated within some other protocol at one end of the VPN (like a wrapping that hides a gift, so the recipient cannot tell what's inside), transmitted over the internet to the other end of the VP...
