I am using the IPAD VPN connection to connect to my Forefront server. It connects fine, gets an IP, but then I am trying to connect using RDP to any of my servers using the internal IP. Nothing will connect. Any ideas?


Thanks

Are you allowing VPN Clients to access the Internal network on your Forefront box?

Yes, I currently have no issues with my laptop doing this exact same thing.

Can you ping the servers by IP address from the ipad when connected via VPN?

Also, have you ever RDP into those computers (I'm guessing yes, but if not make sure they have the port opened on them).

I cannot ping, and I have used RDP for these servers before. And under the VPN settings is says my IP is 192.168.1.159 and I can ping the IPAD from a PC on the network.

Hi,

Is the firewall policy blocking inbound traffic - do you see anything on your forefront logs?

The strange thing is, logging when the laptop is connected, I see all activity, logging when the IPAD is connected, nothing.

Hi,

Do the logs show that an IP address is being allocated etc?

Are you using PPTP, SSL or IPSEC VPN?

PPTP, IP Is being allocated, the only thing I see in the log is when I disconnect PPTP disconnected. Not sure why, but maybe something with the proxy settings on the IPAD not being correct? Not sure why that would matter connecting on and internet IP for RDP though?

Hi.

Try disabling split tunnelling and route all traffic via the VPN (at least initially)?

Are you not allocating an IP address from a private range? 192.168.1.x etc. is typically assigned by ADSL routers and could have routing issues?

Regards,

Hi,

You usually specify a gateway on the remote network.

Hi,

I believe that the Author changed the IP address as I suggested in my post 35181926 which appears to have resolved the problem?
