    Hi,

    I am using LNS firewall with Nortel VPN client. Please help me configure
    rules that will let me connect to my work's VPN server. I've looked on this thread below, but don't understand. I'm a total noob at this.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Hi,

    The rules to be imported are in this import/export file:

    Wow thanks Frederic! Appreciate the help. Can you tell me how to create this rule manually?

    Hi,

    Without using the 2 rules from the import/export file, the log should show UDP packets on port 500 that are blocked.
    With a right click on this kind of log alert, you can create the first rule easily.

    After adding this rule, if you try to connect, then you will see there are some IP packet blocked, the log should also mention the type of protocol used: 50.
    Unfortunately, there is no automatic rule creation for this kind of protocol (this feature works only for TCP/UDP/ICMP), so, you need to manually create a new rule, just select IP as the Ethernet Type and select 50 as the Protocol Type and let the other fields with their default values.
    Back to the list of the rule, unselect the Blocking Attribute for the rule.
