help needed with setting up a VPN
Posted 26 February 2010 - 09:23 PM
I've tried setting it up as LLTP and IPsec, but i'm not having luck with either.. My router says it can handle VPN connections, it's a dlink DIR-130.. and the iphone should be able to do VPN connections, but i keep getting a 'vpn server donesn't respond' message. Can anyone help me out with how to set this up? I'd really appreciate it.
I set up a username and password for LLTP (supposed to be the easiest to set up), but the iphone says i need a secret key.. i tried the same one i set up with the username, but no dice.. am i doing that wrong too? thanks for any help.

Years ago did some business to business VPN's with Linksys FW's. The one you mention allows the creation of a VPN on the FW but from reviews looks like some folks have had problems with it. Don't see a mention of LLTP though.
Check out SSL or SSH tunneling. You might like that better.

What are you using (OS wise) on the inside of your network? Check out SSL or SSH tunneling. You might like that better.
The iPhone does not support ssl vpn or ssh which is a big disappointment.
I know on Cisco VPNs you can create a key in the command line, but I am not quite sure with your hardware.

Looks like there's problems with the new DIR-655 and LLTP with newest FW too.
Found a DIY site that might help you.

Interesting too that you can do this with a DD-WRT update on a Linksys AP.
On the enterprise side have used Nortel's Contivity / Cisco's VPN and finally to lower cost we did an SSL VPN for global access (50k plus users) even though it wasn't as secure; it was just cheaper. On the small business side and for a friend with multiple offices I set up VPN tunneling between inside subnets using an old Linksys FW behind regular FW's. ("mini" DMZ's that were interconnected) (it worked but it was a PITA to set up).

Interesting you mention this though 'cuz the neighbor gave me one a couple of weeks back and I returned it saying that I liked my HTC phone.
