Microsoft VPN Server Issue

Posted on 2011-10-24

Last Modified: 2012-05-12
I have a MS 2003 server that I have enabled the VPN role on.  I am connecting to the internal network  using the MS client and PPTP protocol.  I get a local IP address and SM on my client but I am not getting a gateway.  Using the VPN connection I can access the file system of the server but I cant hit any other server or resource on the domain.  I need to be able to run apps off another server on the domain through this VPN as well.  I created a static route on the VPN server using the IP Address of a 2nd domain server but that did not do anything.  Any ideas what I am missing that would not allow me to get a gateway address on my local machine or why I can not access any other resource?  Thanks

you need to create bridge between your vpn interface and lan interface on your server and parallely check whether your admin has given permission to your access or not.

also you can take a help of this link pasted below...

Permissions are correct but I do not see where to bridge the vpn interface with the lan interface.  On my server I am in Routing and Remote Access>IP Routing>General.  I see my NIC and the Internal interface created by the VPN however when I go into the properties of each there is not a bridge option.  I have also looked in Network Properties and all I see are my 2 NICs.  There is not a VPN Interface under Network Properties..  Where should I be looking?

A bit more information.

My 2003 VPN server has 2 nics.  The primary NIC is used for all file/print, DHCP services, etc.....  I am using the second NIC as the LAN Interface for the VPN.  Both NICs have static IP addresses and use the gateway.  My server is setting behind a firewall and I have created a rule to allow traffic for the VPN interface to pass through the PPTP port.  Maybe this additional information will help.

The issue was during setup I chose the incorrect VPN type.
