Could you please add the option to use profile(s) for the Nortel VPN Add-on, similar to the Cisco & Microsoft VPN Add-ons?

The Nortel VPN profile(s) are stored in filename: Baynet.tbk
Located in the same directory as the Nvc.exe or Extranet.exe files.

Sample:

[Lab1]
Description=Lab1
Dialup=(None)
Username=jsmith
UseTokens=0
TokenType=0
UsePAPGroup=0
GroupName=
SavePassword=0
Server=10.10.10.10
primaryDNS=
secondaryDNS=
primaryWINS=
secondaryWINS=
domainName=
DisableKeepalive=1
EnableSilentKeepalive=0
[Lab2]
Description=Lab2
Dialup=(None)
Username=jsmith
UseTokens=0
TokenType=0
UsePAPGroup=0
GroupName=
SavePassword=0
Server=10.10.10.11
primaryDNS=
secondaryDNS=
primaryWINS=
secondaryWINS=
domainName=
DisableKeepalive=1
EnableSilentKeepalive=0

Hi,
Thank you very much for these information. We will certainly add this. André does most of the add-on and he is in vacation but I will forward him this post.

Hi,

I downloaded the latest version of the Nortel VPN (10.04.109) and the file Baynet.tbk doesn't exist.
It's a file named NvcProfiles_U.dat that contains the profiles and it's located in the user's application data.
I also see that to use a profile the parameter is -UserProfile instead of -Profile.
Are you aware of that and what should I do please ?

Regards

We use Nortel VPN (V06_01.014) available here for your convenience:
http://www.megaupload.com/?d=15X5G8KC

The command line parameter is:
C:\Program Files\Nortel Networks\Extranet.exe -a "profile name"

Cheers,

André have updated the add-on. You must use the latest beta version. Let me know if this works

Hi,

Would you test this new version for me please. I don't have the necessary setting to do so. It should work well with Extranet.exe now.

Thanks!

It works for 'Profile A', but not 'Profile B' see examples below. When I use 'Profile B' I get the Password field, not the PIN & Token fields. It’s probably related to the 'UseTokens' line, if =0 then no token key is required, if =1 then a token key is required.

[Profile A]
Description=
Dialup=(None)
Username=thfs
UseTokens=0
TokenType=0
UsePAPGroup=0
GroupName=
SavePassword=0
Server=10.10.10.10
primaryDNS=
secondaryDNS=
primaryWINS=
secondaryWINS=
domainName=
DisableKeepalive=1
EnableSilentKeepalive=0

[Profile B]
Description=
Dialup=(None)
Username=thfs
UseTokens=1
TokenType=2
UsePAPGroup=0
GroupName=RSA
SavePassword=0
Server=10.10.10.11
primaryDNS=
secondaryDNS=
primaryWINS=
secondaryWINS=
domainName=
DisableKeepalive=0
EnableSilentKeepalive=0

Suggestions:

In my opinion, the 'Application' menu should be at the top and then the 'Profile' menu next.
If Extranet is selected, the 'Profile' menu should search for a Baynet.tbk file.
If Nvc (default) is selected, the 'Profile' menu should search for a Profiles.dat file.
If a profile is selected, all fields should have the values populated by the profile file but greyed out.

Any updates?

Clock9 yrs

Hi,
If I remember correctly the add-on was updated. What version of the add-on do you have?

I have Nortel VPN Add-on version 1.2.0.0

My profiles no longer appear in the 'Profile' pull-down menu? Only 'Session settings' appears.
FYI, I confirmed the 'Installation Path' under 'Options' was correct.
FYI, I have the following selected 'Application: Extranet'

Could you also please consider the following suggestions, I made earlier:

In my opinion, the 'Application' menu should be at the top and then the 'Profile' menu next.
If Extranet is selected, the 'Profile' menu should search for a Baynet.tbk file.
If Nvc (default) is selected, the 'Profile' menu should search for a Profiles.dat file.
If a profile is selected, all fields should have the values populated by the profile file but greyed out.

Excellent, it works. Could you please now update the NortelVPNAddOn.dll file on the Add-ons webpage, it lists 1.3.0.0 but it's actually 1.2.1.0?

Cheers,

Hi,

In fact the latest version is 1.3.0.0 (as the last dll I sent you)
