VPN connects Remote desktop will not

Greetings,
Trying to connect from one corp network to another via VPN and Remote Desktop. VPN will connect just fine but the Remote desktop rejects the connection. If I take the laptop out of the office and jack it into my home's wired network it will connect to the VPN and the remote desktop just fine. I believe it is a firewall issue. Anyone care to offer a more educated opinion and maybe some solutions? I'm just now learing corporate networking in a sink or swim office environemnt. I will be back to rate this.

Frequent VPN connection drop on my wifi


If you can't connect via the Internet to your workplace network from home (or another location), check the items in this list:

  • Make sure that you typed the virtual private network (VPN) server name exactly as provided by your network administrator.

  • You must have an active Internet connection for a VPN connection to work.

  • If your modem is external, make sure that the modem power is turned on.

  • Contact your network administrator to make sure that you have the appropriate connection and domain permissions on the remote access server.

  • This could be a certificate problem. For assistance, contact your network administrator.

  • A VPN connection won't work with an active Winsock proxy client. Contact your network administrator to make sure the Winsock proxy client is not enabled.

  • If you know the IP address (for example: 131.107.10.25) of a website, type that address in the address bar of your web browser and press Enter. If this works, there is probably a Domain Name System (DNS) resolution problem. For assistance, contact your network administrator.

  • If you have special software that's required or installed by your workplace, it could be part of the problem. For assistance, contact your network administrator.

  • If you know the IP address (for example: 131.107.10.25) of your VPN server, type that address for the VPN connection, and then press Enter. If this works, there is probably a DNS resolution problem. For assistance, contact your network administrator.

  • There could be a problem with the server you're trying to connect to. For assistance, contact your network administrator.

If you try to connect with a VPN connection and you see a message that says "The local computer does not support encryption" and has the error code 741, it's possible that the encryption that your computer uses doesn't match the encryption used by the VPN server. To change the encryption settings so that your computer uses the recommended setting of 3DES, follow these steps:

  1. Open Connect to a Network by clicking the network icon (eff2d36c-9e0d-4d1a-9859-3af14fa4ccfc_73.jpg or da12251d-1e9a-4032-afae-009876c6c5a3_80.jpg) in the notification area.

  2. Right-click the VPN connection, and then click Properties.

  3. Click the Security tab.

  4. Under Data encryption, select Maximum strength encryption (disconnect if server declines), and then click OK.

  5. Open Connect to a Network by clicking the network icon (eff2d36c-9e0d-4d1a-9859-3af14fa4ccfc_73.jpg or da12251d-1e9a-4032-afae-009876c6c5a3_80.jpg) in the notification area.

  6. Click the VPN connection, and then click Connect to try connecting again.

Cannot connect via Remote Desktop Connection


due to the open ended nature of the question ... I am assuming you wish to connect to you rpc from another pc using RDP (Remote Desktop Protocol) or commonly known as remote desktop.

if connecting on internal network without any firewalls, start RDP and connect via name or ip address to the other computer. Follow the steps highlighted HERE and you can't go wrong for windows 7.
If external ... please note ... ports 3389 should be enabled on your firewall router. As there are plenty of routers/modems on the market, it will be too numerous to mention here, however, it is commonly noted as NAT'ing or Port forwarding to enabled ports 3389 and redirect the link to you local machine on the internal side of the network. from an external network ... just connect to it's public ip address and you shoul dbe able to connect to your internal machine via rdp. good luck ...

Error 720 - the connection attempt failed because your computer and the remote computer could not agree on PPP control protocol. Gateway Desktop


To resolve this behavior, follow these steps:
  1. Find out which protocols the RAS server is running, and make sure that the RAS service is installed and configured properly (or ask the Network Administrator to do this).
  2. After you find out which protocols the RAS server is running, make sure that your Windows XP-based computer is running one of the same protocols that the RAS server is running:
    1. Click Start, click Control Panel, and then double-click Network Connections.
    2. Under Virtual Private Network, right-click the VPN connection, and then click Properties.
    3. In the VPN Connection Properties dialog box, click the Networking tab, and make sure that you have a protocol that the RAS server is running.
  3. If you do not have a protocol that the RAS server is running, add the needed protocol:
    1. Click Install, click Protocol, and then click Add.
    2. Click the protocol that you need to install, and then click OK.
    3. Click Close in the VPN Connection Properties dialog box.

Can't access network folder after connect thru vpn


if you connect through vpn and your network folder is in your local network, you cannot access the network folder because you are virtually connected to an external network other than your local network. because of this you are actually trying to find your local network folder that is not present on that external network. you may need to disconnect your vpn before you access the network folder in your local network

Also make sure that the PC's you want to access have static IP addresses. Not sure if that was mentioned.

Unable to get remote desk top computer to work on acer aspire one


I think you're trying to connect to your office computer from home/somewhere else.

If that's the case, make sure you have done the following :
  1. Your VPN Session is connected
  2. Your Office IT Administrator allowed RDC over VPN
  3. Your Office Computer RDC is enabled
  4. Your User (local or domain user) having administrative rights or allowed to connect to RDC session
  5. You got no firewall blocking RDC connection or remote registry
To check if you already connected to your office VPN, launch command prompt and try pinging your office computer name or IP Address. As an example if your office computer name is PC-100 and IP address is 192.168.1.100 then you will issue : ping PC-100 or ping 192.168.1.100. If you got ping reply than you're good to go.

To Enable RDC on your office computer there are 2 ways :
1. On your office computer, right click my computer > properties > Remote > Enable Remote Desktop
2. Via remote registry :
- Start > Run > Regedit > Enter/Return
- On registry editor, go to File > Connect Network Registry > Type in your office computer name > OK
- On your office computer registry, browse to : HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Terminal Server, find the key "fDenyTSConnections", double click it and change the value to 0

You should disable your windows firewall or 3rd party firewall for easier configuration. You can;however set up exception on your firewall but will need some knowledge to do that.

Hope it helps.

Setting up a VPN through watchguard


The key with any VPN solution is to make sure that the configurations on both ends match. I am not very familiar with this particular product, but it looks like you need to have the proper VPN licenses installed first. There are two types of VPN you can do. 1) Site to Site - This is where the are two static boxes that you want to create an encrypted tunnel between 2) Remote User access - This is where mobile users connect to a central site over an encrypted tunnel from their home or on the road. Next, take a looks at the User Guide PDF here: https://www.watchguard.com/help/documentation/soho6.asp Chapter 10 tells how to configure the VPN on the Firebox side. You would just duplicate your settings if your doing option #1. Chapter 11 tells how to configure the VPN on the client side. This section would tell you how to configure the client software for option #2. Hope this helps.
