Nortel VPN won't connect - create socket fail error.

Nortel VPN won't connect - create socket fail error.

Post by michael.ay » Thu, 13 Nov 2003 06:47:41

was searching for the same problem and found a solution that works.
Cisco starts 2 services. One called CVPND and the other CVPNDRV. If
you perform a "net stop CVPND" nad "net stop CVPNDRV", the Nortel
client will run fine. we added 2 batch routinfes that the users can
click one to start the Nortel client, and the other to stop it. WIN98
should be the same. there is probably a "RUN" profile for each of
these, and you can disable them in "msconfig".

Hope that helps

Here's some suggestions. Start with the XP box.
Remove any and all drivers from the NIC that don't need to be there,
the QoS stuff.
Turn off XPs built in Firewall, use IP only, etc..

Uninstall the Contivity client. Delete the Nortel directory.
Reinstall the client and put the XP box directly on the DSL connection
for testing).
If it works, put it behind the Linksys, if it fails, make sure you
firmware is up todate.

Once you get that to work (you may need to use brand name NICs), move
to the
98 box.

The 98 box will cause you grief if you have the Cisco VPN client on
If you're using IPSEC for the VPN, then I believe the LinkSys will
allow one PC at a time to use VPN.
You may be able to still use this, if you can put two NICs in it and
bind one "shim" to one NIC.
Nortel on one NIC, Cisco on the other. Hardware profiles may also be
to help here.

Good luck.

1. Is it possible to use windows 2000 professional's VPN client to connect to Nortel VPN router?

2. Unable to connect to VPN using Vista and Nortel Contivity

I got a new Dell Dimension 9200 running Vista Ultimate about a week ago and
gave been trying to connect to my work VPN ever since using the Nortel
Contivity VPN. I found the version of Contivity that loads on Vista and I've
got it up and running. However the connection comes up for about 15 seconds
or less before dropping out with a message that the secure connection has
been lost. My trawling on the net suggests this is as a result of an
inability to send and receive two-way traffic on UDP 500. Running the exact
same Nortel client through the exact same router with my Dell XP machine
works just fine. Must be something with the Vista machine! I've checked the
firewalls, I've connected to the internet without the router and I just
can't make it work. It's driving me NUTS. Can anyone tell me how to make
this work?

PS This thread shows that at least some people have got it working
