Updates to Sandbox Reservation Internet Access Policy

Due to changes in our networking policies, we are updating the internet access policy within our sandbox reservation instances.
Hosts will no longer have internet access outbound.
This should not affect the overall functionality or access to the resources within the sandbox instances, connecting via VPN.

Keep Innovating!

Unable to establish VPN connection with NX-OS sandbox

Hello!

It seems that there is an issue while establishing the VPN connection (using Cisco AnyConnect) to my sandbox lab "Open NX-OS with Nexus 9Kv".
The url provided is : "devnetsandbox-emea-gwy.cisco.com:20XXX".

 

When checking the log, this is what I have : 

23:36:49 Contacting devnetsandbox-emea-gwy.cisco.com:20XXX.
23:37:04 Connection attempt has failed.
23:37:04 Unable to contact devnetsandbox-emea-gwy.cisco.com.

 

Anyway, I tried with a 4G connection with my phone and it worked directly, but this is not very handy. I checked with "portquiz" the reachability of the outgoing port and it appears that it is not blocked by my ISP nor my firewall.

Any idea where the problem could come from?

Thank you !

Re: Unable to establish VPN connection with NX-OS sandbox

Just found the issue in case anyone have the same problem.

My ISP disabled my public IPv4 address and switched to IPv6, so I had a private IPv4, which is why the VPN tunnel could not establish.
I asked them kindly to switch back to a public IPv4 address and it worked right away !

Have a good day

I think maybe something else is going on here, I can't connect to the emea gateway either. Tried 3 separate devices and ISPs.
