VPN from Laptop using XP to Server using Windows 2000
Posted on 2006-07-22
I just setup a VPN connection to my servers. I have it set to use the DHCP server, but when it setup the ip address it used 192.168.0.31 and then used the same for the default gateway. If I'm thinking correctly, wouldn't it want to be 192.168.0.1 so I could get out on the internet. When I'm connected to the VPN I can't access webpages or messenger doesn't work. I would like it not to use my servers to access the webpages and such but I don't think that can be accomplished but I would still like to be able to access the internet though. The main reason for the VPN connection is so outlook can access the exchange server which is blocked by cox and comcast connections using port 138. So when I use the VPN connection outlook can then access the exchange server. The only problem is that I can't access the internet and other internet ports because it can't find it's way out. Any suggestion as I'm new to the VPN setup and just did it on my own without any help or manuals. I have made it work for the most part and can access the exchange server. Let me know your thoughts.
