SOURCE: Proxy Server Refused Connection

If you're using Firefox, click on "Tools" at the top of the page, click on "Options" which is at the bottom of the list that comes up, then click Advanced, choose Network from the four tabs below that. There should be a sentence "configure how Firefox connects to the Internet". Click on the button next to it that says "settings". and make sure that "Auto-detect proxy settings for this network" has a dot in the little circle. If not, click on it and click on OK.
You may have to shut down Firefox (your internet browser programme), then try getting in again. Should have sorted it.

I have reseted the router configuration back to Factory Default, and set it up again from the beginning. I think the problem was at the firewall settings.

SOURCE: WRT120N doesn;t permit VPN accesses

Most times when VPN is not working is because one of the ports is not forwarding right. Easy fix is to go to router settings and enable DMZ for your computers IP address. Also you can actually find out what are the ports this VPN uses and go to Port Forwarding part of router and open the ports manually. My favorite is DMZ. All this does is open up ports for your computer IP address so there is no blocked pockets. Good luck.

Tip

Set up and Use Internet Connection Sharing


Hi,

To enable Internet Connection Sharing on a network connection

You must be logged on to your computer with an owner account in order to complete this procedure.
Open Network Connections. (Click Start, click Control Panel, and then double–click Network Connections.)

Click the dial–up, local area network, PPPoE, or VPN connection you want to share, and then, under Network Tasks, click Change settings of this connection.

On the Advanced tab, select the Allow other network users to connect through this computer's Internet connection check box.
If you want this connection to dial automatically when another computer on your home or small office network attempts to access external resources, select the Establish a dial–up connection whenever a computer on my network attempts to access the Internet check box.

If you want other network users to enable or disable the shared Internet connection, select the Allow other network users to control or disable the shared Internet connection check box.

Under Internet Connection Sharing, in Home networking connection, select any adapter that connects the computer sharing its Internet connection to the other computers on your network. The Home networking connection is only present when two or more network adapters are installed on the computer.


To configure Internet options on your client computers for Internet Connection Sharing

Open Internet Explorer. Click Start, point to All Programs, and then click Internet Explorer.)

On the Tools menu, click Internet Options.

On the Connections tab, click Never dial a connection, and then click LAN Settings.

In Automatic configuration, clear the Automatically detect settings and Use automatic configuration script check boxes.

In Proxy Server, clear the Use a proxy server check box.


Good luck!

What is the difference between VPN-connection and Proxy websites?


While both a Proxy and VPN service will re-route your internet traffic and change your IP, they function slightly differently.
Think of a Proxy as a Web Filter. The proxy settings are applied to your internet browser whether you're using MSIE, Chrome, Safari, Firefox, Etc. When browsing the internet through a proxy server, all benefits with that server are used, for example, (Security, Speed, and Geographic Location). The proxy will only secure traffic via the internet browser using the proxy server settings.
Unlike a Proxy, a VPN service provider(Virtual Private Network) encrypts all of your traffic, replacing your ISP and routing ALL traffic through the VPN server, including all programs and applications. This also will use all benefits of the VPN server such as (Speed, Geopgraphic Location, and Security).
The VPN can be easily connected or disconnected with the click of a button.
In conclusion, a proxy server is completely browser based, and is not as compatible with certain web pages that use non-browser technology such as: Comedy Central,Zatoo, Fox OD, and Sky Player. However, a VPN will work with ALL internet based services, but will offer less choice on which applications will get run through your ISP, as with the VPN, everything is routed through that server when connected.
So, you can get VPN services from sources like HideMyAss, Super VPN, etc., Once you have enabled a VPN service, you can visit IP-Details.com and have an IP lookup to ensure the change in your IP address.

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.

"use a proxy server for your lan (These settings will not apply..


I assume you find this in Tools, Internet Options, Connections, LAN. This proxy server setting is only used when you are working through a network at a school or company. You need to have the checkmark next to "automatically detect settings" if you work through most broadband connections like cable or DSL.
Now, if you have the "automatic" checked and the Proxy check appears anyway, this must mean that you have some program that is trying to connect to some network or call home somehow. This could be a virus. Do you have a good AV program? Be careful because many of the websites that say they want to check your system are actually virus downloaders.

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 an MN700 Base Station with dialup


1. disable all ICS and all Proxy settings on all machines 2. connect the NIC to the MN700 using Port 1 3. set up the MN700 and the wireless connection 4. switch the MN700 to Bridging mode 5. enable ICS on the host computer The basic object is to have the working connection for your dial-up, then set up the base station as an access point only, then share the working connection via ICS through the NIC. Quite similar to having a switch box, but you're going wireless with it. You don't need to feed the MN-700 any of the normal info like your Internet Service Provider's IP/DNS, etc., because your computer already is sharing that info.
