Microsoft VPN PPTP & IP
Posted on 2006-07-17
Hi, I have a problem with MS VPN - PPTP. I a Win2003 SBS server I need to connect to remotely. I've set up the router with TCP port 1723 for PPTP, and IP Protocol 47 (GRE). The remote connection works fine, establishes the connection, and registers the computer on the network. All good so far. However, it sees this address 192.168.1.207 at BOTH ends of the VPN (ie the 2003 SBS server and the remote PC) as the local address. This looks wrong to me, (but I only have experience in router-router VPNs) Is this normal? How do I then map a drive from the client to the remote? If I map a drive to \\192.168.1.207\C$ I get a mapped drive OK, but it is the local C drive of the workstation!!! Any help would really be appreciated...
