Computer at VPN Server Network cannot ping VPN Client

Hello,

we configured a VPN server using Windows 2000. The Windows Vista client could connect and ping devices that are in the network and have the same address pool. But, those devices couldn't ping the VPN client. What's the matter? Another problem is that though the connection is good, the client keeps disconnecting.

Thanks!

1) use the latest VPN client.

2) VPN connection using dialup, are one way, from the client to the server. you can not access the client from the server.


I hope this helps !

Hey,
I'm using the Windows Vista client and connecting to the server via Internet.
Anyway maybe there's something I'm missing here, even because I'm not expert with networks.
What I want to achieve is to connect a VoIP client to a VoIP Server, but I need encryption for that, thus the VPN. So, let's say the VPN connection gets me the IP 192.168.1.20, I would use it instead the external(74.x.x.x) IP to connect to the VoIP server. The VoIP uses the port 5060.
So, given my goal, it should work through VPN?
Thanks!!

Because a VPN is one way, this may not work if the server has to see the client on the network.A better solution may be a site to site VPN, rather than dialup, or something that has a VPN client software that can get an IP from the local LAN properly, and has more config options.
 
I hope this helps !
