Is Possible to Registrar a MAC Address in a VPN

Recommended Posts

Hi Gurus of Networking, I have a question:

I have a connection VPN to my Branch Office, but some day the Network administrator send an e-mail and he tell me that I must be disconnected the VPN. But In that moment I don't use the VPN, Someone was coneccted to the VPN I think.

The Question is:

I want to know if exist a System or tecnology that when you access a VPN, the firewall (or equipment that manage the VPN) register the MAC address of the Station/PC that use the VPN?

For example If someone know my user/pass of my VPN can do anything in my branch Office, and the Network Administrator would think that I do it. When I'm not the person that use the VPN.

Thantk gurus for your suggestions or advice

I suppose you re using a PPTP VPN type, right? If we're to speak about this type of VPN or even more: SSL, the base rule: the client receives an IP address from the VPN server. Now, some VPN servers, either it's PPTP or IPSEC offer you the possibility to configure a DHCP server for it. For these VPN Servers (PPTP - Windows Servers, IPSEC - different appliances, eg: Fortigate) you can make reservations based on your Mac address.

 

Except those, I doubt you can do a MAC binding VPN authentication. I can only suggest you to use strong passwords/change them regularly and few issues will "meet you" from now on.

Remember A MAC address is left at Local Data Link when you cross a Router to another Subnet or Network. Your Datalink address is deleted from your Data Payload. So you can't configure it through VPN in General Networking concepts. But Microsoft gives its VPN clients a Digital Certificate to identify a true Machine (PC) please read about Microsoft Policies.
