I am setting up 2003 Small business server in my test lab. I want to enable routing and remote access. Right now it has a local IP of 192.168.1.7. We have a linksys router as well. My server has one NIC card. I know i can set up VPN access to the server either through:
1. Network connections -> create new connection -> Advanced connection->check the radio box to accept incoming connections.
2. Configure routing and remote access. I have to click the custom configuration radio button. All the others require me to have two NIC cards. So i do custom, then check the VPN Check box, and then finish.
I have a couple questions.
1. Which VPN connection should i use. Create new connection to allow remote access, or configure the Routing and Remote Access.
2. What ports do i open up on my linksys router. i thought it was 1723 but it doesnt seem to do anything. On a client outside our network i tried creating a vpn connection with the external IP of our lynksys. I get the login box coming up with the username and password, but nothing works. Keeps saying no answer. Is there any configuration i need to do on the VNP server here. Let me know if there is any other information you need. I'm sure i am leaving something out. Thank you all.
