SBS 2003 client VPN Connection using MS CHAP V2 Behind Linksys routers
Posted on 2006-05-14
I have a Small Business Server 2003 network. I connect remotely on occasion using the Windows XP VPN Connector. By default the SBS uses MS-CHAP V2 for authentication. The VPN connection works fine if I am not behind a Linksys router. If I am behind a Linksys router and connect with the VPN connection it says that it is connected, but I don't have any connectivity with my SBS network. I can't ping the server, see any network shares, etc... It is odd that is even says that it is connected. This happens with any model of Linksys router I have tried.
If I am connected directly to the internet of behind a Netgear or D-Link router the VPN connection works fine and I can work as normal. I can ping the server, see all the shares, etc...
Does anyone know how to get the VPN connection to work properly behind a Linksys router?
