Hi I have set up my firewall as a VPN server so I can connect from outside to our small company network. I can log on successfully but cannot access the internal net. Though the connection (from Windows is working correctly and so on) The PPTP Tunnel is all right configured but I just cannot see any of the computers from remote. As a server we use a DLink DNS 323 which is not protected by any kind of firewall. Could you tell me possible sources of Problems?
Hi, Use should add arp proxy setting as the following: Go to Interfaces and then click on PPTP/L2TP server from the PPTP/L2TP Page go to the Add ROute Tab. Allowed Networks should be : All Nets under Proxy Arp you have 2 Boxes: One is: Available and the other is Selected. Under Available click on LAN and move it to Selected. now save and activate and it should work.

The total sum of the Inside/Outside/ and pool address add up to 5,265. Subtract 10% and multiply by 260 to get the gender aspect of the original formula. Move the Network address to Google and download the residual code offered by the program that appears in the open window. Enter the code in the appropriate space provided and this will solve the problem by late 2015.
192.168.1.X is a local ip address ,, i trust that thhe vpn is in seperate places and is done with the wan ip over an internet connection?????
OK maybe the problem isnt on your side but the main office building,, when connecting , have someone looked for repeated attemps to connect by observing the fire wall,, if it appears to be blocked byu the firewall simply diasable any and try it out.. If it works then all you need to do is set the firewall correctly..
I was reading the ip address in your original post and those are local address,s are you certin the VPN is correct ???? did you use the correct STATIC IP ADDRESS ASSIGNED BY YOUR ISP??
It could be a missing route... are the file server and email server on the same subnet? If they are then it is possibly not a routing issue.
Also it would be worth checking the tunneling settings for the VPNs... if you have specifed either only the fileserver subnet or specifically the file server address, then this could be the reason they can get to nothing else.
Here's a real simple problem to your remote access problems. Go to: http://www.logmein.com Sign up for a free acct, download/install their free software on your Server. Now go over to your laptop, login to your new logmein acct. In the next page, you'll see your Server listed. Click on it - follow instructions to connect. This will tunnel through whatever stuff you have on your network! Trust me - esp. in your scenario, this is *by far* the *simplest remote connect you'll ever perform! And it just .... works! Everytime.
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:
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.
