I can't get VPN to work, what am I missing?
Posted on 2004-11-20
Server is Windows 2003, I setup RRAS with VPN only. I have TCP 1723 forwarded to the Servers IP (192.168.1.101) and I have enabled PPTP and IPsec passthrough on my Linksys Router. MTU on the router is set to 1400. This used to work for me a long time ago, but I have not been able to get this to work for quite some time. I can make the connection if I am on the local network and connect to the internal IP, but when I use the WAN address it does not work. The initial handshake works, but it just times out while "Verifying username and Password". This leads me to suspect there is a firewall setting that is incorrect. I am tired of beating my head against the wall over this, I need some expert advice.
