Can't open Intranet Pages behind NAT router!!!
Posted on 2004-09-20
I can not open any intranet pages over my VPN if my home router is in the mix. Once I plug in directly to the cable modem, I can access EVERYTHING. There seems to be an issue with passign through the NAT device. I pull up the intranet page using the following address: 192.168.1.230:90/default/aspx
At home, I have a Windows XP Pro laptop plugged into a Linksys WRT54G router, Linksys cable modem, using Comcast high-speed cable internet. When I use my Microsoft PPTP VPN client to VPN into my Windows 2003 Server at work from home I can not open any intranet pages regardless of the ports being used. I can usually open the shared drives on the server but never an intranet page.
On the server side I have Windows Server 2003 going into a Linksys BEFSX41 wired router with ports 47 & 1723 forwarded to the static IP of the server. I don't think there are any config problems on the server end. I think the issue resides solely on the client end. I can VPN in using an AT&T EDGE card and successfully open the intranet pages.
Any quick help would be greatly appreciated!!!! :)
