WIN2k Client to Client over PPTP VPN

Posted on 2004-03-24
Last Modified: 2010-04-12

I have recently set up a Windows 2000 Server and ADSL router as a VPN using PPTP.

I can connect WIN2k clients to the VPN successfully.

Is there such a way that one client can connect to another client via the VPN.

I don't know what you mean by connect the clients together via the VPN.  Do you want Computer A at location 1 to be able to talk to Computer B at location 2 through the VPN after they have connected to the ADSL router?  If this is the case then use the IP addresses assigned to the computers by the VPN server.

I assume your ADSL router has a VPN server built in? What make is it? (Draytek?)  or is your 2000 Server a RRAS server?
