Doesnt matter, it looks at it as a connection to the net, cause sybase is listening on LAN interface IP

home side doesnt helps me. Server side is a problem. I need ip config on both interfaces, LAN and VPN, "route print" so i can check how the packets are going thru. Probably, u dont wont to give such info in the net and I understand but without it, I cannot help u a lot. You can create imaginary IP but be precise in translation rela IP to imaginary one.

Your IP address on the VPN connection (PPP) is an APIPA address, but your connection needs an address matching the internal network. Is there a DHCP server to lease IP addresses for the connection? If not, there's no communication between computers (they're on different subnets, so data won't flow). without a gateway (IP address for the router), the connection won't know where to return traffic.
Hope this helps.

If the DHCP server is on the router, go to the vendor's Web site to research how to enable it. You can also configure the DHCP Relay agent in the RRAS tools (under IP Routing) to point to the DHCP server.

Expand IP Routing, r-click DHCP Relay Agent, choose properties. Input the IP address of the DHCP server.

1) Having port 1723 open won't lease IP addresses, and the connection MUST HAVE A VALID, UNIQUE IP ADDRRESS FOR EVERY INCOMING CONNECTION,
2) If you right-click on the DHCP Relay agent and choose properties, you can input an IP address for the DHCP server. If you don't have that, then you need to log on with an account that has Administrative Rights.

On RRAS tell that all incoming VPN connections will be assigned following addresses and write few (depends how many concurent connections u wanna have) from 192.168.101.x range (thats: Open RRAS, right click on the server and then on IP TAB. There u gonna see IP Address asignement, click static address pool. Both Enable IP Routing and Allow.... must be checked. After that, try to connect to it.. it should work

It is my opinion that the last link that I had posted from microsoft would have helped the user with their issue, however, I will leave the decision up to the moderators as to how to award the points... I would recommend PAQ/AWARD...
