Having VPN problems, Linksys RV042, SBS2003 - Connects to router but no route to LAN
Posted on 2006-06-28
I wonder if you kind and talented people can help me!
My customer has:
5 XP Pro Clients
2 Mobile users
Server is Dell PowerEdge SC240 - Celeron!! (yuk)
D-Link DSL-300T Ethernet DSL modem
Linksys RV042 VPN Router
I'm having trouble accessing the domain with a VPN connection. RRAS is enabled and seems OK, on the Linksys I've configured a Client to Gateway VPN tunnel with their static IP address (Gateway), and I selected the remote client as having dynamic IP + domain name to authenticate. The local group IP range is 192.168.16.0 - 150 - which is the internal network (the server has 2 NICs, one for DSL 192.168.0.3 and the other internal 192.168.16.2 - are these ranges normal ie. no bridge/same subnet?).
I downloaded the Linksys QuickVPN client software, inputted a relevant username and password with the router's WAN IP in the server address to connect to. It connects but doesn't seem to route it to the LAN as I can only get remote management (to the router). I don't get assigned a 192.168.16.X IP - the dial-up 81.X.X.X remains. Maybe I should be using the XP VPN connection - but that doesn't work either - What am I doing wrong.
This description is probably missing bits you need to know so please tell me what you need.
Thanks in advance
