Hello HiltonPark,

did you rename the 'MyBusiness' OU?
if so, rename it back to MyBusiness
the remoteaccess wizard is following a script that expects to find the "MyBusiness" OU
in AD. If you rename that OU, it always fails. Simply name the OUback to "MyBusiness"

Regards,

Hi Suppsaws

I do not recall making any changes in OU. AD Users and Computers I had checked for this problem. It reads as follows:-

AD Users and Computers
SavedQueries
mon.local
Builtin
Computers
Domaincontrollers
Foreighsecurityprincipals
LostandFound
MSExchangeobjects
Mon
NTDSQuotas
ProgramData
System
Users.

System was Fine up until Tuesday this week andevent log confirmed the remote access service stopped at 11.35.

Bit stumpped on this one

check ADUC > MyBusiness, it seems it's renamed.
I guess you renamed it into 'Mon'?

Hello Suppsaws,

I see what you mean. Can't recall renaming it so I must be loosing the plot. Having done the rename the remote access wizard now runs without returning the error. Vpn is still down.

Having tried to VPN into the server I get error 721

Any thoughts?

best regards

Hello suppsaws

I followed you link and can confirm the following

RRas is listening on TCO 0.0.0.0.0:1723.
In the router Netgear DG834G
firewall rules are
GRE TCP port 47 forwarded to SBS W2K3 Wan Nic 192.168.*.*
VPN-PPTP port 1723 forwarded to SBS W2K3 Wan Nic 192.168.*.*

Plus other rules
SMTP port 25 forwarded to SBS W2K3 Wan Nic 192.168.*.*
ServerVPN port 443,4125 forwarded to SBS W2K3 Wan Nic 192.168.*.*

On the router UPNP is enabled do you think there is any mileage in running the internet and email wizard and allowing the the server to configure the router. I have never used this I normally manually config the router. More control this way.

Best regards
