WIN XP PRO acting as VPN SERVER - Can connect but not use any resources on server
Posted on 2007-03-29
Problem with VPN Server Connection Win XP Pro. I have created a vpn incoming connection on my windows xp pro pc using the supplied wizard. I have created the vpn to allow access to other computers on my lan, I have setup a range of IP address for the VPN, same network ID as my current network. Everything appears to go just fine. At my win xp pro client side, I created a new connection for a VPN connection. One more note, I am using Verizon DSL at both ends, I have utiliaed dyndns.org to create a concept of a static IP address to the server. In addition I have port forwarded 1723 to the win xp pro pc acting as a vpn server. When I perform the dialing at the clinet side I get an error indicating that the connectin was made but there was an errror in the ipx/spx protocol. I check the IP address of the VPN and see one for the client and one for the server. I am able to ping the server IP address from the client without any problem. However I am using a client server application that will allow me to input the ip address of the vpn server to make the connection. When I do this get the error unable to connect to ip address 192.168.1.251 (server address) port 5052. I have disable the firewall at the other end and still get the error. We do not have domains and we are using simple workgroup peer to peer networking. In addition when the VPN client is connected to the server I can't see any of the resources on the server side.
What is missing here can anyone help me? This is a real serious problem for one of my clients.
