Using VPN in XP through NAT or SSH using MS PPTP
Posted on 2004-11-26
I'm currently trying to connect to my office by vpn, but are having som trouble...
Here is the situation:
- I'm trying to use windows XP's build in vpn client to connect to the office (recommeded by their IT-department).
The office is running af VPN server on a windows NT mashine, properly the build in one from ms.
- I'm behind a router, on a 192.168.2.x network (this can't be changed).
The office network is also 192.168.2.x
So, I can actually connect to the office VPN, but every time I'm trying to connect to a server, my own router relays the message back into my own network (due to 192.168.2.x on both sides)
I need to get by this!!!
So there are some possible solutions, but haven't any idea of getting any of them to work...
- Somehow it must to possible to get by my own router directly, though NAT or something!
- I have the possiblility to connect with ssh to my school, and with putty portforward the ms PPTP ports... But the ms PPTP (or windows xp VPN client) also uses other protocols I don't know if I'm able to forward... like GRE!
With this last solution I actually came to verifiring password... But never never got any answer! With Ethereal is saa this may to to do with a "PPP LC" protocol message, which is not forwarded to the office... why??
If anybody can help me I would be very greatfull... Maybe u can help me with the above solutions... Maybe u have another idea!!
