How to access Windows 2003 server from remote site thru VPN connection (router to router)
Posted on 2006-04-04
I have an question about VPN. I had one Linksys RV082 VPN router installed in main office (with fixed IP, and subnet is 192.168.0.0). I use and Linksys RV042 VPN router (Dynamic IP with 192.168.10.0 subnet) in the remote site to setup the VPN router to router connection to join 2 locations together.
The VPN connection for both site has no problem and up and running. I can ping the main office workstations and connect to network printer no problem. But I cannot access the Windows 2003 server in the main office. No matter I try to pring it or remote access it will has no respond or error. I can browse and connect to any workstations in the main office except Windows 2003 server.
Is anyone know why ? or did I do any configuration wrong ? In the remote site, I can use MS Windows XP PPTP client to the main office and access the Windows 2003 server no problem. But If I use QuickVPN client or use Router to Router to connect. I can only access workstations but NOT the Windows 2003 server.
Please help me to solve the problem. Do you think when I use Router to Router VPN or QuickVPN client, I need to use the same subnet of main office (192.168.0.0) in the remote site also ?
