Can't connect to external VPN using Netgear WGT624 Firewall Router
Posted on 2005-05-03
I have a home network setup that uses the Netgear WGT624 Firewall Router, and I have two laptops that connect to the net through this router. I set up 2 IP reservations, and they are 192.168.0.2 192.168.0.3, with the router's IP being 192.168.0.1.
When attempting to connect to my office's network using the WinXP Pro VPN connection setup, I always get the error code 721 (from Windows) and all it says it to check the IP address and make sure my logon info is correct. I have used this VPN connection from other locations (via modem, other unsecured wireless connections, hotel's networks) many times with no problem at all.
This happens whether I am using the wireless connection or even connected directly to the router with an ethernet cable and my wireless card disabled. I have XP SP2 installed, the firewall disabled, and also have ZoneAlarm shutoff at all times. Updated to latest router firmware yesterday as well. When I log into the router using the admin account, I cannot find any information about VPN connections or perhaps allowing connections to trusted IP's.
Thanks in advance if anyone can help!
