VPN Connection Problems with Windows 7

Hello,

      I have a windows 2003 Server which has VPN configured. I have total 5 clients who access VPN.

The problem is now one of the employee got a new laptop with Windows 7 Ultimate. I configured VPN client on that laptop, but Its not working. I checked my firewall settings(Mcafee) and everthing seems to be fine. This particular client is able to access to VPN with his XP.

Can someone help me with this..

Try This

Uncheck  the IPV6 network properties and try. If still issue persists do the following steps

1.     Go to “Control Panel\Network and Internet\Network Connections”.

2.     Right-click the VPN connection and click Properties.

3.     Switch to Networking tab, click Internet Protocol version 4 (TCP/IPv4), and then click Properties.

4.     Click Advanced, click to select the Use default gateway on remote network check box, and then click OK.

On the VPN server do you have GRE protocol 47 open on the Router/Firewall? This needs to be open along with port 1723.

Hello JBond,

       I'm kind of lost.. My VPN Server is configured on DC in My network which is assigned with a Public ip and cofigured to our mail server which acts as a gateway.I'm not sure where I have to enable GRE protocol. I tried checking under Routing and Remote Access, but couldn't located.

The firewall which we have is Mcafee software based. Should I configure this GRE  protocol on the firewall.

Thanks in Advance

You need to open ports 1723 and GRE protocol 47, you need to open these on the WAN of the Router/Firewall ie: WAN - LAN and forward these ports onto the VPN Server's ip address.

I managed to fix the problem. The problem is with Mcafee Firewall. I had to create policies for PORT 1723 and GRE protocol.

Thank you Jboond for the valuable infomration.

Thank you Bitla..
