a wan , a wireless lan and a vpn , really confusing need help
Posted on 2003-10-28
basically, my isp provides a static ip addressed wan connection over dsl to my netgear dg824m wireless modem/router, i then server lan addresses via wireless and wired to my lan (can be up to six or eight machines). i have dedicated a lan ip address to my hardware print server and also to a win 2003 server.
i want to set up a vpn on my laptop so i can either dial in via the web or connect via the web (using a friends/workplace dsl connection) .
i am confused as to
a, configure win2003 server
b, routing thru my isp wan ipaddress and forwarding that over my lan to my server , wwhich will then allow me access over my lan
what ports typically can i use or assign to my dg824m wireless firewal cable/modem router, so remotly my laptop can access thru on a vpn.
i understand how to set up the vpn connection on my laptop.
just really confused on how to set up a vpn server and allow it to accept connections coming thru my dg824m and get it routes correctly
this is of high importance because i am in the process of getting a business up and running and am getting very frustrated that i can only seem to utilise an ftp server from my lan to shift files around.
this works as long as i cn be on my lan every few days. i really need a proper vpn set up to work remotetly more efficently
