Cisco VPN Problems using a Netopia router

By ciaran.mchugh ·

I'm trying to connect to a Cisco VPN Client using a Netopia router (Model 2247NWG) from home.

I am able to connect to the VPN client at work no problem but cannot get the router configured to work from home.

My broadband provider uses a dynamic IP address. I've tried to configure the DHCP setting to a static IP address and set a DSN range but still no joy. I have also switched off the firewall but had no luck with this either.

I'm don't work in IT so this is about as far as I can get on my own.

Any advice would be great.

You need to reconfigure your netopia to have the following ports open and forwarded to your attached PC running the Cisco VPN client

UDP 62515, TCP 10000, UDP 4500, UDP 500

and in order for port forwarding to work, you need to assign a static local IP address to your PC.

Here's a guide on how t setup with linksys router, which is similar in concept.
