Re: negotiation timout occurred - in Windows 7 64 bits

I am having a very similar problem with Windows 7 x64 Professional with the workaround below.

 

I have been upgrading and since the 2.1.7 RC1 the problem is fixable and reproducible.

 

I am using three IPSEC tunnel connections regularly to netscreen, checkpoint and cisco vpn  routers.  The problem happens the same for any of the connections and does not seem to be affected whether my parallel OpenVPN tunnels are running or not.

 

After running the Shrew 2.1.7 installation I can connect with no problems until I shutdown the laptop.

After a restart of Windows always the same negotiation timeout occurred for any of the tunnels.

However if I rerun the installation vpn-client-2.1.7-release.exe (deinstalls, removes all services, reinstalls) then it will work perfectly again until the next restart of Windows.

Thank you so much for Shrew without which I had not been able to connect to these tunnels at all in Win7 x64, but please could you help out because to running the installer before I can connect is very frustrating.

 

Hopefully the above might help others with the same problem. 

 

Cheers,

James.

Re: negotiation timout occurred - in Windows 7 64 bits

I have now found a more permanent workaround by disabling the “Microsoft Virtual WiFi Miniport Adapter”, which I presume the install program was doing and restart was re-enabling.

 

As described in this other post

http://lists.shrew.net/mailman/htdig/vpn-help/2010-September/003043.html

 

Hope that helps anyone else with the same problem.
