I can connect to work using Nortel client VPN. To get it to work I need to open a set of ports in my firewall.

Anyone know which?

You shouldn't need to open any ports for the VPN client - it's all outgoing connections. You just need to make sure your router supports IPsec passthrough.

My router is a Linksys 45GL, on which I have installed OpenWRT. Therefore I configure the Linux firewall myself. So I guess getting IPsec passthough should be done "as normal". I'll keep searching on that. Thanks! – leiflundgren Mar 1 '10 at 14:37
