In our company we are providing VPN connection to our employees. VPN connection works fine with iPad and iPhone.
Images below shows the configuration for iPad. I need to configure that for Android "Galaxy" as I tried that but I couldn't.
Looking to hear from you.
Your help is appreciated.
To configure it you need to follow this path:
Settings --> Wireless and network ---> More ---> VPN --> Add VPN network
Type: IPSec Xauth PSK ---> (to use pre-shared-keys)
Server: VPN server's IP.
IPSec identifier: Connection profile
IPSec pre-shared-key: Secret key.
That should do it.
Do you see any errors on the server side? What are you connecting to (an ASA for instance)?
Thanks in advance.
Please rate any post you find useful.
Thanks for your reply.
once I click Add vpn connection.
Add PPTP VPN
Add L2TP/IPSec PSK VPN
Add L2TP/IPSec CRT VPN
Which one do I have to chose?
Thanks and Regards,
I am on a Verizon Samsung Galaxy S III running ICS 4.0.4
This is still not fixing the problem. I am told that I have successfully connected. But no data transfer takes place. I cannot connect to internal systems not to external open websites from the phone.
With our Cisco IPSec at my company I have a Macintosh which works. My Galaxy S3 set up is also shown. Is there something else to check?
I am also on a Samsung Galaxy S III. It is running the original Samsung firmware with the build number I9300XXALF6, the setup is the same as Nick's and I am seeing the exact same issue. The connection is established, but it is not possible to connect to any server or even ping to any device on on the companies network. Is there any solution to this? Is there anything else I could check?
I have exactly the same problem. The VPN connection is established, but no traffic is flowing.
On my Radius server, I can see successful login for group and user. On the phone, a "tun0" interface is created with an IP address from a pool configured on the VPN concentrator. Also, the routing table seems correct.
Android release: 4.0.4
Build number: I9300BULF1
It is fixed (at least with the Galaxy S3) with the latest firmware update, which I applied yesterday. The build number is I9300BULG2. The VPN worked perfectly fine after that.
I can confirm this for I9300XXBLG8 and wireless LAN. In this setup the VPN now works flawless. On the other hand when using any flavour of mobile connection, the appearantly first access to the VPN by whatever tool causes a reboot of the device.
Yeah it seems I spoke too fast : I tested only with wifi connection, and indeed with a mobile connection I also get a systematic reboot when accessing networks behind the VPN (with mail application for example).
There is a third party solution for the problem at least for Android 4.1.1 on a Galaxy S3
It is called VPNCilla on the Google Play store. It has a trial version so that you can verify it works with your device on your network.
