Hi all,

I have two questions regarding the built-in VPN (KWF 6.0.11, Kerio VPN client 1.0.7):

1) In addition to the IP adddress assigned to the VPN client from the pool configured in the VPN server, the VPN client gets configured with a second IP address in the range 169.254.67/24, which resembles that of Microsoft's APIPA. Where it's coming from?.

2) Is there any way to logon on a Windows NT or Windows AD domain sited in the remote network, using the VPN client?.
(host operating system being Win2K or WinXP Pro)

Thanks in advance.

Best regards,
-G.

ad 1)
From the VPN adapter installed on your computer. You can open the properties and assign it another address. Make sure its address is not in the range you specified at the VPN server.

ad 2)
The VPN gives you only a network connection (tcp/ip connection). It does not automatically logon. If I remember it correctly there is another posting where someone suggested to make the VPN connection persistent (always on) and run the vpn client as a service. It will connect to your office lan. When you want to logon as a user verification can be done via the VPN tunnel created by the service. If you want to be sure search for that threat...

Thanks for your response, feite.

Regarding the ad 1)
In the "Interfaces" section of the KWF administration console I can see the VPN Server, but can't find the VPN adapter. Can you please tell me how to open their properties?

Again, thanks a lot.

Best regards,
-G.

Open the network connections. There is an adapter called 'Kerio VPN'. Select the properties and change the ip address of the TCP/IP protocol to a fixed address. You can assign one and the same fixed ip address to all Kerio VPN adapters on all client (and on the KWF server).
