hi ive configured a domain network via win 2003 & isa 2006 receiving internet access via my isp virgin media - residential netgear router box and also added relevant remote vpn configurations.  (this is just a simple test to confirm my dhcp allocates an address which it does).

normally i would go to my friends house and gain access to the internet by plugging a cable into their hub.

question 1.  as i can also gain internet access via my laptop access and '3 mobile phone' that is plugged into the 'usb', which has a built-in modem. could i connect to my network at the same residential location in order to test properly my remote vpn connection ?

i assume i can as both my network and mobile phone are on 2 different networks although located in the same location.

you can use that VPN too on your pc to get access with the internet, and of course via your mobile phone as modem, if its supported by your mobile.

yes my mobile phone is plugged into my laptop and provides internet access.

so if my mobile phone has internet access via my laptop, can i configure a vpn connection so that i can logon to my local network via my 2nd isp ?

hi yes u were correct my mobile phone connected via a 'cable' to my laptop and it did allow me to connect remotely to my isp via my vpn.

i was also able to 'telnet' to my cisco switch, which i configured as an extra!

there was 2 things i had forgotten to do:

- i had not opened isa2006/vpn properties and completed step 2 to locate the windows group' i had already created in 'aduc'.

- netgear router 'gui' box was: pptp port 1723 now added.  i did not add before as i did not see it in the list!!

i also went to a friends house and connected my laptop to their 'sky router box' and i did not even have to allow pptp port 1723' as it still let me logon!!

all sorted
