Connection to an Intranet

ReggieM used Ask the Experts™
Dear Experts,

I have to connect to a shared folder on another network.  If I use the VPN option in XP or 2000 when creating a new network connection I am able to connect from home through comcast cable modem.

From my office I can ping the IP address I was told to use but I cannot get to the login prompt.  I get an error 619 saying "a connction to the remote computer could not be established".  

I am behind an access list but I am not sure what would block this from comming back to me.  Does anyone know if I need to add a permit statement with the IP address I am trying to connect with?

Thank you for the help.

I have figured out the solution.

I had to add a few permitt statements to the access list to allow access to the specific VPN.

access-list 115 permit tcp host x.x.x.x eq 1723 host x.x.x.x
access-list 115 permit gre host x.x.x.x host x.x.x.x
