  • Mac + VPN on SBS 2008

    Hi all,

    I have the following issue and bare with me, I'm discovering VPN connections :

    A window PC can connect to my SBS Box through VPNs. I can't say I'm fully happy with it because sometime, the connection won't work. Anyway, on the pc, i have the following info :

    Carte PPP MyDomain:

    Suffixe DNS propre à la connexion : MyDomain.local
    Description . . . . . . . . . . . : WAN (PPP/SLIP) Interface
    Adresse physique . . . . . . . . .: 00-53-45-00-00-00
    DHCP activé. . . . . . . . . . . : Non
    Adresse IP. . . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.0.23
    Masque de sous-réseau . . . . . . : 255.255.255.255
    Passerelle par défaut . . . . . . : 192.168.0.23
    Serveurs DNS . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.0.4
    192.168.0.4

    Everything seems ok !

    Now I try to do the same with my macbook, and impossible to make it work. I followed the tutorial :

    http://www.smallbizserver.net/Articl...0/Default.aspx

    I go through login process, so it's a good start. I get the following info from ifconfig :

    ppp0 : flags=8051<UP,POINTOPOINT,RUNNING, MULTICAST> mtu 1396
    inet 192.168.0.16 --> 192.168.0.25 netmask 0xffffff00

    I manually added the DNS server but nothing will work from my mac.


    I just realized the following that when I connect with my PC windows and then disconnect, then I cannot connect from my mac, I have to reboot my mac! And when finally that works, I cannot connect at once on my windows, I have to wait. So maybe something is screwed on my server. I did the standard installation on my sbs following the wizard.

    Any pointers ?

      Sorry for that... i thought that VPN would be the same in SBS 08 than windows server 08. I was hoping the reach more geeks !

        Probably it is very similar, but SBS (as I'm sure you know) has its own way of doing things (UTFW ) so this is a better place for it
        No apology needed!
