Re: connect to VPN 1 Securemote

If you are still having the same problem, try opening up the DMZ on your router or ask your network administrator for ports to be open on the router.

I have a D-Link DVG-G1402S router, I'm trying to setup VPN connect for a windows VPN server, which inside the network. I tried use modem directly connect to the server, it work, so it process my...

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.

You need two things, the settings for the VPN to setup your computer to connect, and you need to set your router to allow VPN passthrough, look for settings like IPSEC, PPTP, etc. in your router's setup.

Usually you can access your router's setup through a web page, to access this, Click on start, then run, type in CMD and press OK.  When the command prompt window comes up, type in IPCONFIG.  Note the Default Gateway IP address that is listed.

Open a browser like Internet Explorer, and type in that IP address into the address bar like this:

Then you will probably need a user name and password to get in, and while you are in there, check for things like port forwarding, applications, and VPN to find the settings that you are looking for.

If you are unable to locate this information yourself, I am available for remote assistance, all that is required is that you email me a request for assistance and request a PIN.  I am usually available during the evening hours (Central Time).

Trying to set up a vpn server on windows XP using

Did you already forward port 1723? I guess you have done that. To isolate it, try to bypass the router and setup or establish the VPN session there. If it doesn't work, maybe your ISP doesn't allow port 1723 or it's just the modem.

I am running vista and using the dlink di-808hv router. i have set up a pptp connection. when i use ms vpn to connect, it connects but only limited connectivity. can you help?

Peer to peer tunneling protocal is what pptp is if its connecting a limited connectivity that means some of the ports are stull being blocked thus needing for you to use your machine in a demilierized zone so this will open all avilable ports to your VPN software. Also keep in mind not all ISP's will support PPTP so you may have to use a softvpn software. Thanks i hope this helps

I am trying to set up PPTP connection to the internet on my WRV54G router (behind a cable modem). The set up calls for a fixed IP address, mask and gateway address, but my ISP is not providing those - only...

most cable companies are dhcp configured. so you would leave the wan config as default. the only thing i would do is mask the computer mac address. this should give you the access you need.

I keep getting disconnected from my companty's vpn . are there settings i need to configure my verizon fios supplied actiontech router. messaGE is "network connection sssion teminated nc app23711"

- Check the Internet if working properly?
- Access the configuration page of your router and open the firewall settings, uncheck the list below:

Enable PPTP Passthough
Enable L2TP Passthough
Enable IPSec Passthough

- Try to gather some VPN ports to open using the router.

Note: You should have your permission from the connection of VPN to use it.

DLink DI-624s - can't get Cisco VPN Client to connect.

The "Virtual Server" setting is designed to give the general public access to a network resrouce (web/ftp/media server) on your internal network. If your the VPN concentrator is external to your network (meaning you'll have to use the internet to connect to it), then you won't need to define a virtual server on the DI-624.

You'll just need to enable the IPSEC and PPTP VPN Passthrough which it sounds like you've already done this. I've run into some ISP's that block VPN connections out of their network. If you have the ability, try to directly connect your laptop into your cable/DSL modem in place of your router and see if you can make a VPN connection, if not contact your ISP, if you can then verify you enabled the VPN passthroughs because your router is blocking them.

GIve it a shot and let us know your results.

Cisco VPN Client won't connect

You'll want to enable the VPN transparency. In the router's administrative web interface, click the Security Tab, then the VPN Passthrough sub-tab. Cisco VPN's usually use IPSEC, so enable the IPSEC Pass-through and click "Save Settings". If this doesn't work enable the PPTP Pass-through as well and give that a shot.

the following is from a nice guide i found on the net, see if it works for you: First thing to check is whether your router has any settings for PPTP or IPsec "pass through". These are commonly found in Linksys routers but you may have to hunt around for them on other makes. All you need to do is enable the setting for the VPN protocol that you're using, reboot your router and, if you're lucky, the VPN connection will come right up. Note: Not all routers have these enables and the lack of them doesn't necessarily mean that you can't get VPN working. Open up that Firewall Still no connection? The next step is to try opening some ports in your router's firewall to get your VPN connection made. In each case, you'll need to open the specific ports (and protocol) to the IP address of the computer that you're running the VPN client on. NOTE that port mappings work with only one computer at a time. If you have multiple VPN clients that you need to connect, your router will have to support the VPN protocol that you're using without requiring ports opened. If you're using Microsoft's PPTP protocol, TCP port 1723 is the port you'll need to forward to allow PPTP control traffic to pass. Figure 2 shows the Forwarding screen on a Linksys BEFSR41 set to forward this port to a client with IP address PPTP also needs IP protocol 47 (Generic Routing Encapsulation) for the VPN data traffic itself, but note that this is a required protocol, not a port. The ability to handle this protocol must be built into the router's NAT "engine"?which is true of most present-generation routers. IPsec-based VPN's need UDP port 500 opened for ISAKMP key negotiations, IP protocol 51 for Authentication Header traffic (not always used), and IP protocol 50 for the "encapsulated data itself. Again, the only "forwardable" item here is UDP port 500, which is also shown programmed in Figure 2 to the same LAN client machine?protocols 50 and 51 must be built into your router. Tip: Not all routers are created equal! Some allow only one VPN tunnel to be opened and used by a single client. Others support multiple tunnels, but with one client per tunnel. Unfortunately, most vendors don't make the VPN pass through capabilities of their products clear in their documentation, nor do they have support staff properly trained to provide this information either. In most cases, your only option is to try a router in your specific application, and make sure you can return it and get your money back if you can't get it working. Still not Working? Getting many IPsec-based VPN setups working can be a black art due to the wide variation in techniques used by various vendors. Although IPsec products have become more uniform as the technology matures, your company may use older, more proprietary products that may not be configured with NAT in mind, or require additional ports to be opened in your firewall.
