Question about 2wire (1000-400108-001) Router
I'm attempting to set up a VPN, either as my end as the server, or my friend's end as the server. He's running a Linksys WRT54GS router, I've a dreaded 2wire 1701HG. We tried everything we could think of: disabling firewalls, running in PPTP or IP Sec, made sure the usernames and pass's were correct; we even got a ping to go one way (but not the other somehow, we think Charter is blocking it). The 2wire allows the ping to go through, but something on his end doesn't allow the ping to go the other way. The VPN won't connect going either direction. We both have LAN's on each of our routers, and both have internet connectivity. The ports forwarded include the 1723, etc, whatever we read online as VPN-specific. Is there something we're missing?
Go to http://gateway.2wire.net 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.
