Connecting to a Novell Server via a Cisco VPN tunnel

Connecting to a Novell Server via a Cisco VPN tunnel

(OP)
How do you connect a Novell client across a Cisco VPN tunnel?

RE: Connecting to a Novell Server via a Cisco VPN tunnel

Is it safe to say that you're trying to use IPX over the vpn since you posted this in the IPX forum?  I don't believe that it's possible. You need to use IP. If you use IP, it's no big deal at all.

Hi, you could encapsulate IPX in an IP Gre tunnel over the VPN.

RE: Connecting to a Novell Server via a Cisco VPN tunnel

I have not been able to get back to this item.

In a nut shell what I am trying to do follows:

We have a Novell server running IPX. The Novell client is installed on the workstation attempting access to the server. I have built a client to pix firewall VPN tunnel. I can activate the tunnel and log into my cisco 2500 router and ping the Novell server.

When we bring up the Novell client it fails to connect to the server. I have done some research and it appears that in the early days of the PIX there was some conflict with the Novell client and the VPN client. Other than that I have not been able to determine why the connection fails for the Novell client.

Thanks
Vic
