Cant map drive or ping remote over VPN sbs 2011

Hi,

Since a couple of weeks we are experiencieng trouble when connecting via vpn to SBS2011.
The VPN connects, but it's not possible to ping the remote side or map a network drive (even when using ip addresses).

The VPN has worked till a couple of weeks ago.

In the router the ports 1723 and 47 are open and redirected to the SBS 2011 machine.

We use PPTP vpn.

The subnets at either side are not the same.

Thanks for any help.

Regards,

That sounds like a Server/VPN config issue.

Hi,

When you are connected to the VPN and have an IP on that network is that IP pingable from a PC or server on that network?

No, it is not. When I try to ping the remote client on the VPN ip from the server, we get General Error from the ping output.

Hi I reconfigured everything and now it seems to work from 1 location. We will test it from multiple locations tomorrow and then I know if it worked.

Thanks.

for any computer having the problem, please post the IPCONFIG /ALL and ROUTE PRINT results BEFORE and AFTER VPN is established.
