RRAS VPN Setup on widows server 2003, behind a firewall Watchguard
Posted on 2009-04-09
could some one help me troubleshoot my problem with rras vpn setup server.
our network has two servers, both are windows server 2003 , and are domain controllers. I have setup rras on one of the servers with a dedicated nic for it. I have opened up firewall which is provided by Watchguard router. we only have one public ip. on the firewall I have opened up the port of pptp and assigned the host address as the ip address of the nic I am using for rras. ( I don't think , this device watchguard, has explicti natting available).
When I try test by creating a vpn connection using a computer from my home it hangs at verifying user name and password for a bit, then gives the error message ' error 691: access was denied becuase the username and or password was invalid on the domian.'
I have gave the user account I am using to connect access as allow in the properties of AD for dial and remote access connection ( something like that, i don't remember the name of the option /tab).
am I mising something really obvious here. how do I troubleshoot this issue and hopefully resolve it.
