I am trying to connect a Windows 2000 server that is on another network to our main network via VPN. The firewall does the authentication. I am using the Microsoft VPN client. When I have connected, I am not able to see any of the network. I run IPCONFIG, and it shows me an IP address, but no gateway. When I use the Microsoft client from a workstation, I do get a gateway taht allows me access. I have used, also, an IPsec client provided by the firewall vendor with the same result, no gateway. I have not tried this from a workstation yet.
I thought that prior to my using up a support incident with the vendor, I'd check here for ideas. I am suspecting that the path through the two firewalls is causing the problem (both are WatchGuard Firebos III--a 70 and a 1000), but I have not been able to see anything that would prevent a gateway from being established. This problem exists whether or not the "Use the remote gateway" or whatever the exact wording is, is checked or not. I do have some server addresses listed in the HOSTS file. We are not using WINS.
Any suggestions would be welcome.
