Surface Pro/Windows 8.1/Sonicwall Global VPN Client

Welcome to Reddit,

MODERATORS
I;m thinking that when you get an address from DHCP, the SOnicwall has a routing rule that allows the traffic to find its way from the client to a target and back. Do not expressly advertise your product. Start your trial today. Perhaps you could try manually assigning one of the DHCP addresses.

SonicWall Global VPN Client stuck acquiring IP

Using another VPN client wouldn't fix that because the same port still would needed to be used to connect to the domain network, right?

Is my only alternative switching the provider? I was using Cisco gear, but I ran into the same problem- it's only been Verizon that i've had this issue with so far, and only when it's their 4G LTE. I had no clue that trying this would do the trick, I didn't even look into another software because I thought the GVC was the one to use because we use it on remote servers and they never had any issues.

Funny that Reddit solved my IT issues and not the support my company is paying money for! I should make a donation or something. I assume that the hot spots wouldn't be any different then the USB cards but I guess its possible. Recently I ran into an issue where remote workers were getting the "acquiring IP" message and would get no further. These users were connecting from various home ISP's. Sorry that it was confusing. If I un check that box I can get a stable VPN connection but I am not able to connect to anything behind the firewall.

I need to be able to communicate with devices behind the firewall and therefore I need DHCP to work,but it seems it won't. OK, so that confirms what I thought you meant. Oops - not finished. I;m thinking that when you get an address from DHCP, the SOnicwall has a routing rule that allows the traffic to find its way from the client to a target and back. And when DHCP is not used then whatever address the client uses, is not properly routed.

Perhaps you could try manually assigning one of the DHCP addresses. Beel Manually assigning does work, but that is easy for me for my end users not so much. I have new information though. I put wireshark on the client and they never receive a dhcp assignment so it seems the firewall is not passing the DHCP request back to the VPN client.

Yes, josh, I agree that manually setting addresses is not the actual solution. The thought was to just see if that address range worked. And, can you log the outgoing traffic from the Sonicwall so as to see if DHCP is leaving it, as opposed to not being received by the client? Mark Pratten 11 1.

Hopefully, this will help someone else I turned off my router. I prayed to God for 30 seconds. I turned on my router. Yudi Herman 1 1. Prayers' results are very much user-dependent. Sign up or log in Sign up using Google. Sign up using Facebook.
