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.

AD_DudeCommented:
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.

i see ip routing under rras how do i confiqure it to point to the router the router address is 192.168.101.1

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

ullmannericAuthor Commented:
when you click ont hat you cannot imput an address

AD_DudeCommented:
RIGHT-CLICK!

ullmannericAuthor Commented:
also why would you do that becuase port 1723 is confiqured to accpet vpn coonectiosn and forward thoserequest to rras.  so why woudl i need the router im just confused but when you right clik like above you can input anything all i get is a internal icon i can right click on.
0
AD_DudeCommented:
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
