How to configure Windows XP Pro as a VPN server
Posted on 2005-03-26
I am trying to set up a VPN server on my XP Pro machine. I went into and created a new network connection, used "Set Up An Advanced Connection", chose "Accept incoming connections", it ask for the connecting device and only LPT was listed so I did not select it, the I checked off "Allow Virtual Private Connections", choose the username I wanted to use, and completed it.
1. Is that all I need to do?
I tried to connect to the VPN and it would not connected, just time out.
2. Any there any other special setting I need to use?
