-Netgear Switch (FS750T2)
-2003 Small Business Server
-3 Mitsubishi DVR's
I am trying to get Remote access/VPN server set up on my Server so I can allow users access to the DVR's from home.
Default Gateway: 10.XX.XX.1
Server has 2 Nics:
-192.168.XX.X (virtual network)
I just tried to setup Routing and Remote Access via the wizard. Here what I selected when I set up the Routing and Remote Access:
-Highlighted Remote Access/VPN Server
-Selected Virtual Private Network (VPN) access and NAT
-Selected the NIC with the 10.XX.XX.10 ip
-Selected a specific range (10.XX.XX.110-115)
-Selected "No, use Routing and Remote access to authenticate connection request
I then went into Active Directory and allowed the certain users to have access to the remote access permission (Dial-in or VPN)
After I set all of this up, the network pretty much went down. Users could not access the 10.XX.XX.10 network. Is it because I used that as the VPN Servers IP? I have now disable and removed the Routing and Remote access, rebooted the server, and now users can access the network. I can only ping certain pcs, but all of the pcs can access the network. Why is that?
I followed this article to the T when I set up Routing and Remote Access :
What did I do wrong when I set this up? I need to have VPN access so the higher ups can have access to the DVR's from home.
Even though the 10.XX.XX.10 IP address is my servers IP address, can I still use that when I set up Routing and Remote access? Or is there a better way for me to set up this?
p.s. I've already tried to set up OpenVPN, but they told me its better to use a dedicated pc (which I don't have, and the company doesn't have a budget for one) with CenTOS 4.5. I don't want to put that on my server.
