Nortel VPN client

I am required by 2 of my customers to use a Nortel VPN client to connect to their private networks to support our servers there. My issue is that when I start my server in my office and then launch the Nortel VPN client and then try to connect to site A, the connection gets made and I can do my work. However, I cannot connect to site B. If I try and connect to site B first, then I cannot connect to site A until after I reboot my compter. There is no help in the Nortel Contivity client log files, except the fact that the connection failed - DUH!. Any ideas on what to check or how to make this work all the time is greatly appreciated.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

I used to use this client and had some strange issues, and thankfully no longer need to (famous last words ?).

Do you have any other VPN clients loded ? The Contivity was very fussy about this, and I always found the most stable opton was to load Contivity first, and then load the others after (Cisco and an other). When removing these to get it back to a ‘clean’ state, you may need to go through the register and remove any mention of all clients loaded, including things like ‘deterministic’ which is used by Cisco and others.

If that doesn’t fix the issue, then you could try removing any process relating to the VPN client, and/or disabling the network interface and re-enabling it again. Not ideal, but if they save a reboot, then it should be quicker.

Your best bet is for the customers to come to their senses and get rid of the Nortel for something else ;-)

Good-Luck
