I have recently installed WinRoute Firewall, and I have been really pleased with it so far. Finally a firewall with good per user reporting and management, nice job!

At work, the firewall is functioning well. It is installed on a child domain controller and is using active directory integration to manage and autheticate users which it does well.

I now am deploying VPN, but it cannot connect. Here is the log:

04/2006 10:58:17] GUI: connecting to <our ip address>

[01/04/2006 10:58:22] Error (161): Authentication failed.

1. I checked that the VPN rules are correctly created by wizard.
2. I have remote access enabled in the user profiles (is this required?)
3. I have no conflicting programs running (clean w2k 2003 install with WinRoute)
4. I haven't changed any defaults.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

I do not now how it works with Active Directory integration, but with internal KWF user database you explicitly need to allow a user VPN access by checking the 'User can connect using VPN' checkbox.

What I did is create a group 'VPN users' with VPN access privilieges and make VPN users member of that group.

Maybe something similar can/needs to be done with Active Directory.

Hope this helps.

That's a great suggestion, thanks! I'll give it a try tonight.
