Trying to create a VPN connection from office to home
Posted on 2005-05-04
I have an office networked PC in the office using XP pro and a home pc on 2k Pro
I have been through the VPN setup in xp and asked my colleague to go to command and type IP config for the home PC broadband connection. Then created the VPN dial-up on the screen.
But using the correct Broadband IP address and home PC username and password it will not connect and give an "error 800"
I have reomoved the software firewalls such as zonealarm and at home all I have is a network of 3 pcs using a 5 port d-link switch but nothing obvious to stop this.
However, when you create a basic LAN and want to shar files you usually have to share files or map a drive but I have not done this, so have I missed like 3 stages out of the set-up?
I guess from the XP pc all I have to do is create a connection, but from the 2k pc that im trying to access what do I have to do?
