The router's PPTP passthrough and IPSec settings assume that you're connecting to an external VPN server on the public side of the network, but it sounds like you're hosting your VPN server inside your local network. If this is the case, you may just want to have your windows VPN box in a DMZ, or get a router that you can exert more control over. Be wary, if you're doing this at a residential location, your internet provider will probably block or "shape" this type of incoming traffic to your local network.
The error Destination not reachable is due to a router not having a route in its routing table; to fix it I suggest consulting your documentation and/or using the admin console and its built-in help to add the route you need to its table. Note that 192.1.1.x is unreachable from 192.1.2.x LAN segment. Not familiar with Paradyne routing syntax, so I would try their web site if available for full details. If you can be more specific about the IP addresses (subnets, they're called) in question, I can provide more info. as to how its done.
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.
I had exactly the same problem. The solution is to set up pptp as a virtual server pointing to the lan ip of the server. Port forwarding only forwards the port but not the GRE protocol (pptp passthrough)
Hi; I have used it with both ethernet and usb connections at the same time. I have never used the bridge, but I use it at home.
Try this ( I have XP SP3): Right-click on the monitors where the clock is (lower right corner), select "Open Network Connections". Go to the LAN connection and r-click "Properties". On the "general" tab select "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)". There you select "Obtain IP address automatically" and "Obtain DNS server automatically" then click "Ok" until exit. Either Shut Down or Restart the PC. Check if this work.
and click on the firewall icon. Click on firewall settings and, if prompted, enter your system password to reach the advanced settings page. select the computer that will function as the VPN server. In the left column, select PPTP server. click on Add, then done. or try changing the IP scheme to the
172.16.0.0/255.255.0.0 or 10.0.0.0/255.255.0.0 schemes by accessing gateway.2wire.net, go to home network icon, then advanced settings. but if you manually configure or disable dhcp, be sure to write down the subnet mask & IP assigned to the 2wire then click on save. if all else fails, run it on DMZPlus mode, however this solution will allow all inbound traffic to the computer. if it still doesn't work on DMZPlus mode, the VPN is either using the same IP scheme, is using IPSec 50 or 51, or will not work with the 2Wire gateway.
