Before I purchase Static Public IP Address for my VPN Connection , I want to know whether the following setup will work ?
VPN Client workstation and VPN Server is separated by Internet.
Both VPN client site and VPN server site are using residential DSL Modem Router ( normal ADSL Modem Router ) .
On VPN Server site , ADSL Modem Router is connected to VPN Server and behind VPN server is Domain Controller .
See the following "layout":-
VPN Client ==DSL Modem/Router ==( INTERNET ) ==DSL ModemRouter==VPN Server==DC
VPN Server site is using Dynamic Public Static IP Adress. ( I understand dynamic public IP address is not the right way to configure VPN , but I just want to try out first whether it work before I purchase Static Public IP Address )
VPN Client workstation is using XP Pro and VPN Server and DC are both use Window Server 2003 . No Cisco product is involved for this case .
Assuming , I already setup/configure VPN Client and also on the VPN Client Properties 's Option Tab , check the box for "include Window logon domain" .
Assuming I will set port fordwarding for PPTP on VPN Server site on the ADSL Modem/Router
Assuming VPN Client is registered Domain computer /Domain User for the remote DC.
What else should I do to succeesfully use VPN to logon to domain ?
I see some article mentioned about :-
1)Open the VPN Client. Choose Options
2)Choose Windows Logon Properties
3)Uncheck Disconnect VPN connection when logging off
4)Choose OK Note: this change to the VPN client only needs to be done once for your initial
logon with CLO.
Choose Log Off
But I cannot find "Windows Logon Properties" and :Disconnect VPN connection when logging off on VPN Client , I though this is Cisco VPN Client option ???
Anyhow , please advise , what else should I do in order to logon domain over VPN ??
Just click / open VPN Client , key in VPN Server credential ( username / password ) plus key in domain name on the domain drop down menu ? Would it work ?
I yet to try out , just want to confirm ...
I am confusing with "Windows Logon Properties" and :Disconnect VPN connection when logging off on VPN Client which I learn from other article ....
I am not going to use any Cisco product in this setup , I only want to use Microsoft VPN to setup this and without involve any 3rd party software/technology .
Please advise . If possible step by step , starting from OPEN THE VPN CLIENT ...
