VPN through a firewall

Hi Experts,

I've setup a VPN connection between my home PC (Win XP Pro) and my laptop (win2k) with no problems at all.

Now, when I'm at work and I try to access my home PC with the laptop while trying to connect it says 'there was no answer' (the IP for my home pc is correct).

I know there is a firewall and a proxy server at the ISP.

Could this be the problem?

What can I do make it work?

Thanks in advanced,
Tech.

At home do you have a broadband router?

If you do, check on the maker's web site to see if it allow VPN passthorugh traffic.
If it does then check you have the lastest fireware installed on the router.

Found it!

Our ISP at work is bloking the port/s needed to establish a VPN connection.

Thanks anyway,
Tech.
