VPN Tunnel up but getting the following error

I have multiple VPN tunnels up on my MFE running V8.  The tunnels show as active on the dashboard.

The other end of the tunnel is a Cisco switch with a laptop behind it.   I can ping from the laptop to everything behind the MFE at the other end of the tunnel.

So all looks good so far.

When I try and connect to a webserver behind the McAfee firewall (via IP address) I get the correct redirect URL from the Webserver, but the login page never comes up and I get the following errror from the MFE.

Dest Port80
EventTCP netprobe



ReasonREceived a TCP connection attempt desinted for a service that the current policy does not support
Source Port1105
Source ZoneLaptop_VPN
SyslogWarnings (4)
Type Netprobe


Any thoughts.  I was pretty sure that once the tunnel was up, no ACLs were needed to connect to anything between the 2 ends of the tunnel.

Re: VPN Tunnel up but getting the following error


According to the audit message, the source zone is Laptop_VPN, is this a virtual zone? If so, then policy is needed to pass traffic in and out of the tunnel. The netprobe tells me that the traffic just did not match a rule for the port 80 web traffic.

What might help is doing a route get to check the destination zone of the packet. Maybe a rule has a different destination zone.

route -n get

Hope this helps,
