Connected to VPN but no internet?
Posted on 2010-11-10
a friend of mine is trying to connect to our home computer (XP PRO) over VPN. The VPN is setup correctly (I use a linksys VPN router, PPTP) and works from other locations.
She can successfully connect via VPN.
She can successfully PING my XP PRO box
But she cannot browse the internet,
and she cannot browse my XP box Website
Her norton is disabled. her firewall is disabled.
I cannot ping her IP from my XP Box, even though she CAN ping my XP box.
Her VPN shows connected on my Linksys router, and pinging me from her machine works, but pinging her from my machine doesn't.
The goal is for her to browse my XP Website from her machine, and both IE and Firefox just display a "waiting for connection" message and hang, not even resulting in an error. (she also cannot browse any internet website)
I tried everything and am out of ideas. Anyone have an idea?
