I have been assigned to take over a few functions at work until they hire a real administrator. Existing firewall was fried and replaced with netgear FVS338. The VPN was not setup yet for VPN passthrough when they terminated the administrator in charge of this at the time so I need to figure out how to set this up to do so. In the settings menu for the FVS338, DHCP has been disable since we have an existing DHCP server. Everything else seems to be at factory default and I've updated the firmware to latest version already. I have a handful of IP addresses written down here that I am to use to set it up but I am confused as to how to do so. I've set a new policy hoping it is configured right and manually added vpn clients to the list. When I try to use the vpn on my laptop to the server, I cannot connect. Anyone know what I'm doing wrong? I apologize if the info I'm giving is not the clear but I"m a beginner.

Hi,

VPN Passthrough does just that, pass the request through to a VPN Remote Access Server.  What technology are you using to terminate VPN Connections?  Is it a Microsoft RAS Server?

You will most likely need to port forward port 1723 to your RAS server and see how that goes.

Thank you NutrientMS.

I know its Microsoft Server 2003 on a dell poweredge 2950 that is controlled through a unix based dell poweredge r805.

How do I set port forward 1723 to RAS server?
