  • VPN help - again!!

    I still need some help if there is anyone out there who can help.

    I have tried to setup server 2003 R2 Enterprise for VPN as follows.

    DSL router
    DHCP set to OFF,
    From ISP Static IP – 61.30.222.xxx,
    DNS – set to WAN,
    IP address 192.168.1.1,
    all appropriate ports forwarding to 192.168.1.10

    External NIC
    IP – 192.168.1.10,
    Subnet 255.255.255.0,
    Gateway – 192.168.1.1,
    Primary DNS – 192.168.254.4

    Internal NIC
    IP – 192.168.254.4,
    Subnet 255.255.255.0,
    Gateway – (blank),
    Primary DNS – 192.168.254.4

    I have gone into RRAS and setup everything in accordance with everything I have read.

    Please look at the IP addresses and forwarding ports and tell me if this is correct. This is the only thing I can’t seem to find answers to and my VPN still doesn’t work. I keep getting the Error 800. I can ping the DSL router, just can’t get through.

    I can get to the internet so I know I can get out OK, I just can't get in.

    Thanks for any help.

    Have you searched ?
    A quick search seems to point to upgrading your DSL router firmware.

    Are you using PPTP or L2TP?

      Where are you trying to get in from, home? Have you set that routers firewall to allow the appropriate ports to go through?

      Some Error 800 links. http://www.google.com.au/search?sour...22Error+800%22
      1 1 was a racehorse.
      2 2 was 1 2.

        Yes, I have setup the DSL router to forward port 1723 to 192.168.1.10. I am using PPTP

        I am trying to log on remotely through the internet with a laptop that is part of the domain when in the docking station. I have also tried to logon from home. Both failures.

          Port 1723 for PPTP traffic and also Port 500 needs to be forwarded to that server.

            Port 500 is for when you're using L2TP.
