VPN I have 2 workgroup/LAN's that I'd like to connect using a VPN. I have successfully configured the routers so that I can Ping from the remote location to the main location. I can also ping the other way. However, I Remote Desktop doesn't work and I don't know how to transfer files from network to network ... which is the real reason I'm going through this whole thing. I do not run file servers ... rather both are just peer-to-peer networks. Help. N.

    each LAN is at a different location. i'd like to connect them together so that we can file share and perhaps duplicate the functions of 'gotomypc'

    does that answer your question?

    i have one network 10.1.1.x
    a second network 11.1.1.x
    they both share files within their own location, in a peer2peer manner, no files servers.
    each network has a router (2 exact same models for each network) that access the internet. i have configured the routers' VPN settings to talk to each other over the INternet.
    I can PING network 10 from network 11, and vica versa. However I can not perform any other funtion ... remote desktop, file sharing..


    thanks,

    N.

    the ISP isn't blocking ... what should the WIndows settings be? What ports shouldn't be blocked?

    Is this network in-house or does it use the internet for traversal?

Yes it helps to know that, thanks. If you are using similar flavors of "Windows" at both ends and the VPN is setup correctly then file-sharing should be relatively easy to accomplish.

Do you already share files on each discrete network locally?

  • Igo-Z Jun 21, 2008

    Which ports is your hardware using for the VPN and have you checked / or can you check that your ISP is not blocking VPN traffic?

  • Igo-Z Jun 22, 2008

    Let's check some basics, I think it'll be more useful at the moment.
    Do you have these or similar settings on your VPN routers?


    Windows Networking (NetBIOS over TCP/IP)
    Allow NetBIOS Traffic Through All IPSec Tunnels

    Secondly have you got a network sniffer program available to you?

VPN in Microsoft Server 2003


The full form of VPN is Virtual Private Network. VPN gives extremely secure connections between private networks linked through the Internet. It allows remote computers to act as though they were on the same secure, local network. Allows you to be at home and access your company's computers in the same way as if you were sitting at work.

Almost impossible for someone to tap or interfere with data in the VPN tunnel. If you have VPN client software on a laptop, you can connect to your company from anywhere in the world. VPN goes between a computer and a network (client-to-server), or a LAN and a network using two routers (server-to-server). Each end of the connection is a VPN "endpoint", the connection between them is a "VPN tunnel".

When one end is a client, it means that computer is running VPN client software. You can use a virtual private network (VPN) to connect components to one network by using another network. VPN do this by "tunneling" through the Internet or another public network. With a VPN, connections across the public network can transfer data by using the routing infrastructure of the Internet, but to the user, the data seems to travel over a dedicated private link.

A VPN gives you the benefit of a dial-up connection to a dial-up server, plus the flexibility of an Internet connection. Using an Internet connection you can connect to resources all over the world. If you have a high-speed Internet connection at your computer and at your office, you can communicate with your office at full Internet speed. This is much faster than any dial-up connection that uses an analog modem.

VPNs use authenticated links to make sure that only authorized users can connect to your network, and they use encryption to make sure that others cannot intercept and cannot use data over the Internet. A Tunneling Protocol is a technology that helps make the transfer of information over the Internet more secure from one computer to another.

VPN technology also permits a corporation to connect to its branch offices or to other companies over a public network, such as the Internet, while helping to maintain secure communications. The VPN connection across the Internet logically operates as a dedicated wide area network (WAN) link.

VPN in Windows 2003 Server: You need a high speed Internet connection to configure and run VPN server. Two individual lan card must be present in a single system where you want to configure a VPN Server. The lan cards should ping each other. Also need a User which's Dial in allow access should be enable. Microsoft 2003 server two tunnelling protocols for a secure VPN connection, one is PPTP (Point-to-Point Tunnelling Protocol) which Provides data encryption using Microsoft Point-to-Point Encryption. The other is L2TP (Layer Two Tunnelling Protocol) which Provides data encryption, authentication, and integrity using IPSec.

Steps to create VPN Server in 2003 Server: At first I go to Start and point to Administrative Tools, then click Routing and Remote Access. Then I click the server icon that matches the local server name in the left panel of the console. If the Routing and Remote Access service was previously turn on, you may want to reconfigure the server.

To reconfigure the server Right-click the server object, and then click Disable Routing and Remote Access. Click yes to continue when you are prompted with an informational message. Then Right-click the server icon and then click configure and Enable Routing and Remote Access to start the Routing and Remote Access Server Setup Wizard. After that click Remote access (dial-up or VPN) to turn on remote computers to dial in or connect to this network through the Internet. Then I have Click to select VPN. In the VPN Connection window I click the network interface (Lan) which is connected to the Internet and go the IP Address Assignment window, then I click Automatically because there was present a DHCP server in network. However, if DHCP is not available, you must specify a range of static addresses.

If you use from a specified range of addresses, open the Address Range Assignment dialog box and Type the first IP address in the range of addresses that you want to use in the Start IP address box. Type the last IP address in the range in the End IP address box. Windows calculates the number of addresses automatically. After that I have accept the default setting of No, use Routing and Remote Access to authenticate connection request and finally Click Finish to turn on the Routing and Remote Access service and to configure the server as a Remote Access server.
For the remote access server to forward traffic properly inside your network, you must configure it as a router with either static routes or routing protocols, so that all of the locations in the intranet are reachable from the remote access server. It also need for security purpose.<SPAN style="LINE-HEIGHT: 115%; FONT-FAMILY: 'Verdana','sans-serif

How to setup VPN on a D-link Router.



Ok to Setup you VPN follow the instructions below. You can configure DI-804HV, DI-808HV, and DI-824VUP+ by web management interface. Type 192.168.0.1 (The LAN IP is 192.168.0.1 by default) in the browser, and then input user name: admin (there is no password by default) to pass authentication of web management interface. Then finish the configurations as showed below on Gateway A and Gateway B. Configurations of Gateway A 􀂾 Model: DI-804HV (DI-808HV, or DI-824VUP+) 􀂾 Firmware version: v1.40 (You can download the latest firmware on D-Link’s website.) 􀂾 WAN IP Address: 14.15.16.17 (Static IP) 􀂾 LAN IP Address: 10.5.6.1 (Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0) 􀂾 VPN Configurations: 􀂄 Enable VPN function on Gateway A. 􀂄 Tunnel Name: toGatewayB 􀂄 VPN Method: IKE (Main mode) 􀂄 Local Subnet: 10.5.6.0 􀂄 Local Netmask: 255.255.255.0 􀂄 Remote Subnet: 172.23.9.0 􀂄 Remote Netmask: 255.255.255.0 􀂄 Remote Gateway: 22.23.24.25 􀂄 Pre-share Key: hr5xb8416aa9r6 􀂄 IKE Proposal (Please remember to add the correct proposal ID into the list of IKE Proposal Index when you finish inputting the following information.) 􀀹 Proposal Name: toGatewayB 􀀹 DH Group: Group 2 􀀹 Encryption Algorithm: 3DES 􀀹 Authentication Algorithm: SHA1 􀀹 Life Time: 28800 􀀹 Life Time Unit: Second 􀂄 IPSec Proposal (Please remember to add the correct proposal ID into the list of IKE Proposal Index when you finish inputting the following information.) 􀀹 Proposal Name: toGatewayB 􀀹 DH Group: Group 2 􀀹 Encapsulation Protocol: ESP 􀀹 Encryption Algorithm: 3DES 􀀹 Authentication Algorithm: SHA1 􀀹 Life Time: 3600 􀀹 Life Time Unit: Second 4. Verify the VPN connection Before you start to establish VPN connection between Gateway A and Gateway B, please make sure the Internet connection between Gateway A and Gateway B is workable. You can use “Ping Test” tool on Gateway A (or Gateway B), and input the IP address of Gateway B (or Gateway A) to see if there is any response from its peer device. Connect a PC (called PC_A) to the LAN port of Gateway A, and connect another PC (called PC_B) to the LAN port of Gateway B. Start to “Ping” PC_B on PC_A, then Gateway A will start to establish IPSec connection with Gateway B. If you can get “Ping” responses from PC_B on PC_A, then it means the tunnel has been established successfully. You can also check the “VPN Status” page with web management interface to verify the status of VPN connections. Figure 1: VPN status of Gateway A after IPSec connection has been established. Figure 2: VPN status of Gateway B after IPSec connection has been established.

Trying to connect two computers to the internet through a router (not wireless) having problems after connecting both computers to the router, only one computer has internet connection. My internet...


Initially check whether the ip address is assigned in the computer in which internet is not browsing using the command ipconfig/all for windows and ifconfig for linux.If ip is present try to ping the default gateway ip address,if ping is success there is no issue in the cable you used and also with ip address.If ip is not assigned assign ip by manually or by using dhcp of router.Enable and disable the lan card in the router so that sometimes the problem get resolved.After ip is assigned and ping with router is ok .Ensure dns servers are correct else give google public dns server 8.8.8.8.Then try to ping www.google.com in command prompt if ping is success then you can browse.

VPN


This example will demonstrate how to create a Virtual private Network (VPN) between two remote locations through the Internet. The VPN policy will use 3DES IPSec to securely send/receive encrypted data over the Internet. When the VPN tunnel is enabled, the two offices will virtually appear to be on the same local network. This example will consist of two DI-804V VPN Routers with a simple setup. The two remote offices in this example will be known as Office A and Office B. Both VPN Routers must already be set up and able to access each other. This is only an example, your setup will vary using the WAN IP address provided by your ISP. Please note the differences in the IP addresses for each office. We will begin by configuring the DI-804V at Office A. Start by going into VPN Settings under the Basic Setup menu. Step 1. In the Connection Name field, type in OfficeA. Click ADD. Step 2. A properties screen will appear for the new connection you have made. Fill in the appropriate information for Office A: Connection Name: OfficeA Local IPSEC Identifier: Local Remote IPSEC Identifier: Remote Remote IP Network: 192.168.1.0 Remote IP Netmask: 255.255.255.0 Remote Gateway IP: 192.170.0.2 Network Interface: WAN ETHERNET Secure Association: IKE Perfect Forward Secure: Enabled PreShared Key: 123456 Key Life: 28800 IKE Life Time: 3600 Step 3 Click SAVE. There should now be a VPN policy created for Office A. Now you will want to Save & Restart the DI-804V. Note: 123456 is an example of a preshared key, please fill in any secret preshared key you desire. Keep in mind that both sites require the same preshared key. Office A setup is now complete, we will now configure Office B with the other DI-804V, Follow the same steps previously with Ofice A to create a VPN policy. Step 1 Please change the appropriate information. Connection Name: OfficeB Local IPSEC Identifier: Local Remote IPSEC Identifier: Remote Remote IP Network: 192.168.0.0 Remote IP Netmask: 255.255.255.0 Remote Gateway IP: 192.170.0.1 Network Interface: WAN ETHERNET Secure Association: IKE Perfect Forward Secure: Enabled PreShared Key: 123456 Key Life: 28800 IKE Life Time: 3600 Step 2 Click SAVE. There should now be a VPN policy created for Office B. Now you will want to Save & Restart the DI-804V. After the VPN policies have been created for the two Offices, the two remote locations should authenticate and connect. To view the status of the VPN connection, go to the Device Status menu. On the bottom-left side of the menu, click on the VPN Status icon. A VPN Status pop-up screen will appear showing VPN connection status. If a VPN tunnel is active, the State should indicate Q-Estab. Go to a DOS prompt and ping the internal IP address of the remote network.
