Connection Manager 6.1.5 Windows


Our team is looking for a VPN solution to connect our public facing workstations to our private lab subnets. I have installed and completed the initial configuration steps for IBM Mobile Connect on Windows with DB2 database. All components for this proof of concept have been installed on the same server with two network interfaces, one on the public network and one on our private PoC subnet.

Public LAN Interface = Public IP
Private LAN Interface =

Our lab router is setup with multiple 192.168 /24 subnets and each is assigned a VLAN ID. The port for the connection manager private LAN is connected to a tagged access port that is tagged with the VLAN ID for ( Gateway) which will be used for Connection Manager and Mobility Client IPs.

So far I have added the Connection Manager resource to Gatekeeper, added Mobile Access to the connection manager, and ip-lan0 MNC was created with default values when I added the Connection Manager resource. Now I am trying to create the MNI.

This is where I am getting confused. When I create the MNI I choose "Use a private subnet" and with I also select the Private LAN adapter and leave all other settings default. I get the error message overlapping subnets because I already have assigned to the network adapter (I see no where available to exclude specific IPs). I figured maybe connection manager would configure this interface automatically so I removed the IP. I can now create the MNI but when I do an ipconfig the only adapter configured by Connection Manager is the virtual adapter and its configured with which is already configured on our router.

I am sure I am missing something obvious here but for the life of me I cannot figure it out. I am open to also configuring NAT but that process seems even less straight forward. Any pointers in the right direction would be greatly appreciated.
