Network Address Translation-Traversal (NAT-T) is mentioned in Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) RFC 3193, whereas User Datagram Protocol (UDP) 10000 is a Cisco-developed method that provides a workaround for the Port Address Translation (PAT) problem. Cisco CVPN 3000 supports both NAT-T and UDP 10000.
IPSec NAT-T allows IPSec peers to establish a LAN-to-LAN connection through a NAT device. NAT-T encapsulates IPSec traffic in UDP datagrams, through port 4500, and provides NAT devices with port information. NAT-T automatically detects any NAT devices, and only encapsulates IPSec traffic when necessary.
IPSec over UDP allows multiple clients to establish simultaneous tunnels to the concentrator through a NAT or PAT device. IPSec over TCP enables a VPN client to operate in an environment in which standard Encapsulating Security Protocol (ESP, Protocol 50) or Internet Key Exchange (IKE, UDP 500) cannot function, or can function only with a modification to existing firewall rules. IPSec over TCP encapsulates both the IKE and IPSec protocols within a TCP packet, and enables secure tunneling through both NAT and PAT devices, and firewalls.
The VPN 3000 Concentrator can simultaneously support standard IPSec, IPSec over TCP, and IPSec over UDP, based on the client with which it exchanges data.
Note: When both NAT-T and IPSec over UDP are enabled, NAT-T takes precedence.
Hi all,We’ve deployed FTD HA managed by FMC. Last week the primary unit had failed and we are running with only secondary FTD.And we are now planning to replace the primary unit with new FTD. Are there any ways to replace the unit without breaking the HA ...
Hello, can someone please help me with a configuration guide with requirements for integration of AD with FTD (FMC) using ISE as Identity source for captive portal authentication. Regards,Juan Carlos Arias
Hi All I want to ask a thing related this ? we have FTD/FMC and along with treat/malware license and we want to block files according to SHA-256 , SHA1 and MD5 signatures. There is no problem with SHA-256 because we can add custom fi...
I have configured my access switch interfaces with DOT1X authentication from Radius server. And my end host connected with these interfaces are getting their IP from DHCP server. But since my end host clients are not able to authenticate successfully, hen...
I have a HA cluster of FTD (Active/Standby). On FMC, the monitoring is complaining failures in screenshot below for the Standby FTD. Everything is healthy on the Active primary FTD and FMC... I do not see any blockings or DNS issues...Any suggestions? The...
