I have configured BM 38 on NW 6.0 SP3. I configured the VPN for NMAS
NDS authentication (following Craig's book to the letter).

I configured the server also for SKIP support (backward
compatability).

I have not been able to connect to the server with either the 3.7
client, nor the 3.8 client.

Using the 3.8 client marked for backward compatability, I receive the
error "Failed responding to authentication challenge. Failed signing
a packet."

When marked for NMAS, I receive the error "Failed Receiving Server DH
public value. An unknown error waas reported by the authentication =gateway."

There is a replica for the users on the BM server (TID10088961).

HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I dont know of any other way to connect.

Also, see the following (if it helps):
