PPTP connection problems
Posted on 2000-04-28
We have an NT 4 PDC on our ethernet. WWW access for our network is via a Pipeline 50 router. I have set up VPN adapters and appropriate protocols and DUN setups on the NT 4 box and a WIN98 node (as well as another 98 box at home that is connected WWW via DUN.) The NT 4 box has but one NIC - for ethernet access - as it does not need to dial our ISP. My account on the NT 4 box has dialin privileges. On both 98 boxes, I successfully get a "Verifying username and password" message; and if I intentionally put in a wrong password, it re-prompts me for a correct one. As soon as it has my full correct login info, it errors (#629) . . . disconnects me. The onlyest thing I can think of is the default gateway thing, but how would I circumvent this?, I don't NEED two NIC's; and if I stuck another on in the NT 4 box, what would I do? just plug it into another data line on the ethernet? assign it yet another IP address?(I only have two left in our subdomain.)
Good grief, someone help me; I offer all my points but one.
