I'm trying to get my hw6515 to connect to our cisco 3005 vpn concentrator via pptp over gprs without success.
I can connect successfully via laptop & xp via pptp but the ipaq just won't connect. Nothing relevant in the concentrator logs.
The ipaq just connects gprs, and sits there saying "Connecting to x.x.x.x" after a bit it gives me "VPN server problems ... bla bla bla"
Does anyone have information that could help me get this going?
Thanks in advance

Re: VPN connection problems!
I am not real versed on VPN connections but the only way I was able to connect to my company's Cisco VPN using my Ipaq was with this program.
The whole thing went very easily.

hi - I just had a tough day trying to connect N150 to my company's VPN, and after a long struggle found out that Belkin N150 does not support the VPN connections. simply upgrade it to N300 and you would be fine.
use the router's public IP address for PPTP requests, instead of one of the other public IP addresses our ISP assigned us, and simply forward PPTP (TCP 1723 & IP 47) requests to the internal servers. Therefore, the only difference is that I am using a pingable IP address which happens to belong to the router instead of using one of the public IP addresses I have NATed. For whatever reason, this solved our problem with connecting to the RAS server. We no longer have to retry up to 6 times to successfully connect
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.
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.
192.168.1.X is a local ip address ,, i trust that thhe vpn is in seperate places and is done with the wan ip over an internet connection?????
OK maybe the problem isnt on your side but the main office building,, when connecting , have someone looked for repeated attemps to connect by observing the fire wall,, if it appears to be blocked byu the firewall simply diasable any and try it out.. If it works then all you need to do is set the firewall correctly..
I was reading the ip address in your original post and those are local address,s are you certin the VPN is correct ???? did you use the correct STATIC IP ADDRESS ASSIGNED BY YOUR ISP??
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.
