  • VPN Testing

    I work with a few software developers, and they're currently doing some projects regarding VPN. They have Cisco VPN and Nortel VPN client, and they need to connect to some VPN servers, which I can setup for various EAP methods, logs etc.
    My first action was to setup Windows 2003 RRAS, and everything works great with classic Windows VPN client, but I can't connect to it with Cisco and Nortel clients. So my question is, is there anyway to use these 2 clients with some other VPN server software, either on Windows or Linux platform, without the need to get the necessary hardware?

    Thanks in advance..

    Cisco VPN client has to be used with cisco Hardware.
    Nortel VPN client has to be used with the Nortel hardware.
    Simple as that...

    There are some projects working to make a Universal VPN client but basically, you need the hardware.

    But I'm curious, what do you want to test then?

      That software my colleagues write is some kind of connection manager that has an universal VPN client, simply said. Cannot disclose any other details, sorry

      I also thought that I had to use Cisco/Nortel hardware, I have ASA 5505, but Cisco VPN Client says it supports ASA 5500 series

      so I'll have to figure something out probably

        Yes, it support Cisco 5500 series except the 5505...
        But I'm sorry to say, there is AFAIK no other solution then buying (or renting?) the hardware.

          Think we'll buy the hardware, because no other solution is available

          <edit> it works in 5505, I managed to make a remote access VPN tunnel, and to get Cisco VPN client to connect to it
