Wrt160n vpn error 800

Error 800: Unable to establish VPN connection

This issue may be caused by a router that has outdated firmware.

Make sure that port 1723 is opened on your router.
For VPN connection , you can try opening port 500, 443-447, 10000-20000 and important port 1723 on your router.

I will suggest you to upgrade firmware on your Linksys router.
After upgrading the firmware, reset the router to factory default and reconfigure it manually.
Open the ports mentioned above and see if that works.

See How to upgrade firmware on Linksys router.

Hi, Unfortunatly there is no solution with your current set up, you will need a medium grade router like a draytek 2820, that can establish the vpn from itself rather than from the computer, this way the vpn is established from the router, and when your archos connects to the router it will also have access to the vpn.

First thing to try is making sure you have the latest firmware on the router. If you have not logged into it before you need to type in your browser address bar and log in when prompted. The router by default does not have a password set so it might be worth setting one in system settings. You should find on the menu an option to update the firmware. Read the screen should guide you how do this. If the firmware is up-to-date and you still have a problem try disabling your firewall on the pc to see if it's getting in the way. Don't leave the firewall off if you find it's causing the problem you just have to work out how to configure it to allow the traffic out. The route should allow this traffic out by default.

I have a WRT54G Linksys Wireless Router and can not VPN or Remote to a server from behind it

It is a passthrough router. you can not create a tunnel using this router. Now if you are using any VPN software to connect to the network then you can try to open the ports on the router.
Reduce the MTU to 1365.
open the ports - 500 , 443-447, 1723, 10000-2000
Try this.
If your router is old then upgrade the firmware of the router.

VPN connection - Client cannot connect

Hi mwells960

Theres alot of differnet things i could ask you, but im going to assume you're jsut setting up a basic VPN. That means that somebody is telecommuting to work and wants to hit the server at work.

That means you have a static ip at work, and your at home workers has whatever, a internet connection lets say. Im thinking DSL with ATT since its a netopia 3347N.

If the netopia has a gui interface, you cant vpn thru it. Its not a VPN router. Its a residential router that you're trying to make do too much.

The sad news is, you can't upgrade it to an Enterprise having firmware router anymore, netopia use to offer that, but when Motorolla bought them out last year, they did away with that nice little feature. For true VPN'ing with a router, first, go get a VPN router to start with.

Most people accomplish what you are doing by putting the netopia in to bridegemode, and then putting a VPN router like a linksys behind it.

Vpn connection

That error means it was unable to connect. Can't find vpn server or security was wrong. Are you running a firewall? If so, open port 1723 and try again or shut it down while testing.
