macintosh >> Cannot talk to mac services through IPSEC vpn

by jamesnet » Fri, 03 Jun 2005 03:06:33 GMT

I I am VPN'ed and I can ping the server, and see the web server, but I
can not access the mac file shares using afp/smb with the ip address or
the name, it always times out. I have tried it without anything also.
I can see every other machine on the network as well, but I can't
connect to the mac services.

Any Ideas?

AFP uses port 548. Is this blocked within your company's VPN networking?

Can you ping the server from the Mac? Do you know if Windows clients can
access the server via vpn? It seems unlikely that this is a Mac services
issue alone if SMB connections are failing as well. While AFP connections
would be blocked if 548 is blocked as William suggests SMB connections would
not be blocked. A snippet of an SMB related KB and the link follow:

"The following ports are associated with file sharing and server message
block (SMB) communications: . Microsoft file sharing SMB: User Datagram
Protocol (UDP) ports from 135 through 139 and Transmission Control Protocol
(TCP) ports from 135 through 139.
. Direct-hosted SMB traffic without a network basic input/output
system (NetBIOS): port 445 (TCP and UPD)." ;en-us;q298804

Looks like there -was- Netlock and TunnelBuilder
but neither seems to be available now; Netlock seems to have
died, and was bought by Siemens.

There was also PGPNet, which apparently had a freeware version.
PGPNet became "McAfee VPN Client". Network Associates
sold the PGP line in 2002 but kept the McAfee VPN Client.
But it seems to have disappeared as well.

I am facing a problem when I install the Nortel Contivity Client for VPN.
When I have installed Nortel Contivity VPN client and the system restarted, 
the IPSec service is diabled and I am not able to ping the IP address in the 
command prompt. Also I am not able to see the networks in the Task Bar. When 
I manually start the IPSec service, it is hanging the system. Also I am not 
able to shutdown the system. Its continuously showing the shutting down 

 If I uninstall the VPN client everything is working fine.
Please let me know if any body has got an idea ?

Thanks in advance
