Something on my home network is interfering with my VPN connection to my office
Posted on 2010-11-13
i am having an annoying problem.
For many years i have been connecting to my work Win 2003 R2 server via a VPN connection without a problem.
i have recently moved home and have started to have problems.
i am able to connect the VPN connection (PPTP) but after a few minutes all traffic over the connection stops. the VPN connection is not dropped on the client or the server but no data will pass over it.
the people i live with have apple mac's/iphones/ipads that connect to my Draytek 2800 router and they have asked me to enable uPNP. i dont know if this could affect things.
i have disabled all VPN services on teh Draytek router so its not that that is causing the problem.
as i say i have been connecting to the VPN fine for years.. its just recently (sinced i homed home) i have been having problems.
