Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G Router

Remote access to server

Hi,

We are having a problem connecting to our server at the office. It works for a day or so... and when there is no LAN activity, we cannot ping the router from outside.

But if someone at the office connects locally then everything comes back to life and stays that way for a while.

Any ideas? Please!!!

Thank you.

The router has the ability to disconnect itself from the ISP connection if idle for a given amount of time. This feature is probably enabled. It is selectable in the WAN settings by way of a checkbox. The feature accommodates a cost savings for users that pay extra if a certain number of hours of access are exceeded.

Tip

VPN in Microsoft Server 2003


The full form of VPN is Virtual Private Network. VPN gives extremely secure connections between private networks linked through the Internet. It allows remote computers to act as though they were on the same secure, local network. Allows you to be at home and access your company's computers in the same way as if you were sitting at work.

Almost impossible for someone to tap or interfere with data in the VPN tunnel. If you have VPN client software on a laptop, you can connect to your company from anywhere in the world. VPN goes between a computer and a network (client-to-server), or a LAN and a network using two routers (server-to-server). Each end of the connection is a VPN "endpoint", the connection between them is a "VPN tunnel".

When one end is a client, it means that computer is running VPN client software. You can use a virtual private network (VPN) to connect components to one network by using another network. VPN do this by "tunneling" through the Internet or another public network. With a VPN, connections across the public network can transfer data by using the routing infrastructure of the Internet, but to the user, the data seems to travel over a dedicated private link.

A VPN gives you the benefit of a dial-up connection to a dial-up server, plus the flexibility of an Internet connection. Using an Internet connection you can connect to resources all over the world. If you have a high-speed Internet connection at your computer and at your office, you can communicate with your office at full Internet speed. This is much faster than any dial-up connection that uses an analog modem.

VPNs use authenticated links to make sure that only authorized users can connect to your network, and they use encryption to make sure that others cannot intercept and cannot use data over the Internet. A Tunneling Protocol is a technology that helps make the transfer of information over the Internet more secure from one computer to another.

VPN technology also permits a corporation to connect to its branch offices or to other companies over a public network, such as the Internet, while helping to maintain secure communications. The VPN connection across the Internet logically operates as a dedicated wide area network (WAN) link.

VPN in Windows 2003 Server: You need a high speed Internet connection to configure and run VPN server. Two individual lan card must be present in a single system where you want to configure a VPN Server. The lan cards should ping each other. Also need a User which's Dial in allow access should be enable. Microsoft 2003 server two tunnelling protocols for a secure VPN connection, one is PPTP (Point-to-Point Tunnelling Protocol) which Provides data encryption using Microsoft Point-to-Point Encryption. The other is L2TP (Layer Two Tunnelling Protocol) which Provides data encryption, authentication, and integrity using IPSec.

Steps to create VPN Server in 2003 Server: At first I go to Start and point to Administrative Tools, then click Routing and Remote Access. Then I click the server icon that matches the local server name in the left panel of the console. If the Routing and Remote Access service was previously turn on, you may want to reconfigure the server.

To reconfigure the server Right-click the server object, and then click Disable Routing and Remote Access. Click yes to continue when you are prompted with an informational message. Then Right-click the server icon and then click configure and Enable Routing and Remote Access to start the Routing and Remote Access Server Setup Wizard. After that click Remote access (dial-up or VPN) to turn on remote computers to dial in or connect to this network through the Internet. Then I have Click to select VPN. In the VPN Connection window I click the network interface (Lan) which is connected to the Internet and go the IP Address Assignment window, then I click Automatically because there was present a DHCP server in network. However, if DHCP is not available, you must specify a range of static addresses.

If you use from a specified range of addresses, open the Address Range Assignment dialog box and Type the first IP address in the range of addresses that you want to use in the Start IP address box. Type the last IP address in the range in the End IP address box. Windows calculates the number of addresses automatically. After that I have accept the default setting of No, use Routing and Remote Access to authenticate connection request and finally Click Finish to turn on the Routing and Remote Access service and to configure the server as a Remote Access server.
For the remote access server to forward traffic properly inside your network, you must configure it as a router with either static routes or routing protocols, so that all of the locations in the intranet are reachable from the remote access server. It also need for security purpose.<SPAN style="LINE-HEIGHT: 115%; FONT-FAMILY: 'Verdana','sans-serif

In the rules, you will need to create a new rule that allows your VPN subnets access to you office LAN, and then on your office network gateway, add a route for your VPN subnet pointing back to your checkpoint firewall.

Hi, Please help me I have one pc having DSL internet connection with usb modem, I shared connection through ip 192.168.0.1 and my other pc i made it obtain Ip automatically and I am getting internet...


If both your clients and your on the same Lan connection ( and I don't think they are on the same LAN NETWORK), you have to add his computer to your workgroup, in the meantime, you have to change one of the two ip addresses so that connection will be possible, otherwise never. If you are not on the same Lan connection, there's no possibility doing this way, you have to use a remote desktop tool like Teamviewer or LogMeIn etc...

If they are connected to a Server, then you have to configure it from the server, or if connected through a Router (You'll need to properly setup the Vlan with the switch/es), then setup from the router.. etc..etc...

If both the computers are connected to the Internet, you better opt for Teamview, with teamviewer you can access everything (don't configure anything during the setup installation) on each other's computer... File sharing, transferring, remote access as you work on that computer..etc..

You can download TeamViewer free from here (click here).

As you know, networking is very complex and it's not so simple to read and follow the steps through instructions without proper understanding of the concepts..

If you need further help, let me know.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Remote access


Yes it is. You can use the vnc server and client utilities for this. Install VNC server on all the linux pcs. Then install the windows version of vnc on the pc you want to connect FROM.

Give the ip address of the linux pc you wish to connect to, and lo, you get the same desktop that is on the linux pc. Of course you can configure password protection.

Another easy but techie way to connect is with telnet or ssh command after enabling these services on the linux pc.
