A virtual private network (VPN) is a network that uses a public telecommunication infrastructure, such as the Internet, to provide remote offices or travelling users access to a central organizational network securely. VPNs encapsulate data transfers using secure cryptographic methods and other security mechanisms to ensure that only authorized users can access the network and that the data cannot be intercepted.

I have a standard network collection that connects to my network and the internet. I have added a VPN and I find that all of the internet traffic is routed through the VPN. After much research I have found that unticking the Use the Default Gateway option in the connect IP4 and 6 settings of the VPN will correct the issue. The problem I have then is the network I am connecting to using the VPN is inaccessible. I have also attempted to set a metric for each connection but whatever I do the VPN metric is always lower that the local connection.

OS: Windows 10

Any help would be gratefully received.

Hi Experts, my colleagues alleges that VPN are totally untraceable.  Yet I tell them that even though one is not traced via the use of a VPN, government can request of the users VPN provider a history of sites visited.  And if the VPN is free, it's even more viable for government access their activity logs (some stuff I learn with u guys!).  So what is the experts take on this? and How viable is my colleagues statements?

I've just bought a DrayTek Vigor2620Ln (ADSL/VDSL router/firewall with backup WAN port and 4G LTE modem built in - UK version)

I want to be able to create a site-to-site (or LAN to LAN in DrayTek's terminology) VPN via an IPSec tunnel to a Netgear ProSafe firewall I have running at another site. Simultaneously I want to be able to access a L2TP VPN Server running on Windows 2012 RRAS (behind the DrayTek at primary site), via passthrough when I'm out and about.

Having created the site-to-site VPN with a few issues along the way, I have got it working. I have also got the L2TP VPN passthrough working so I can connect from my Windows laptop when away from the main network. HOWEVER, it seems impossible to get both working at the same time. For the site-to-site to work, I have to tick the 'Enable IPSec VPN Service' under the Remote Access Control settings on the Draytek. But once I do this, passthrough of the L2TP Windows VPN fails. If I untick, it is the other way around with the Site-to-site failing and the L2TP passthrough working.

I suspect someone out there will confirm DrayTek routers simply cannot both have a site to site and L2TP passthrough connection connected simultaneously (I momentarily achieved it once, on initial bootup). I appreciate both VPN types use IPSec, however every single Netgear and Linksys router I've owned and used to date has been able to do both simultaneously with zero problems. I'm hopeful I'm missing something, but fear I'm not and the …

I've been experiencing this issue when logging into our network from different locations including VPN where drives and folders I normally have access to are no longer available.  Some network shares fail to connect completely and some only show me some folders but not all of them.  This is very strange behavior and I'm not sure what could be accounting for it.

These sites are networked through a wan connection and has DC's at both sites that are trusted.

Setup: PepLink Balance One router, using LogMeIn Hamachi for remote access VPN.
Goal: Replace LogMeIn Hamachi VPN with PepLink's built in Remote User Access.
Anyone has experience using PepLink's own Remote User Access, is it worth the while, secure?
Need detailed instructions please.

Need to set up VPN access to a home network so that files can be accessed remotely.
Specifically access to Synology NAS would be useful.
Should a hardware VPN firewall be purchased.
If yes, apart from that would other precautions need to be taken?
Could a hardware VPN firewall be used in conjunction with a Google Wifi router?
Thank you.

Many of our employees perform consulting work for various companies at a time. Usually the customer provides our employee with a logon to their company and a VPN client or RDP login to their network. Our employees become confused with the logins and print services and other issues.  From a security perspective, we have to make exceptions for non-standard software to download the customer's VPN software if they do not have a clientless connection for our employee to use.

I am wondering how other handles companies handle this use case or if you have any recommendations to simplify this. The only thing I can think of is placing each customer's VPN connection on an encrypted USB and have our employee work off of it or if it would be worth the $$ and effort to invest in thin clients and create a desktop image for each client?

As always, your thoughts and expertise are greatly appreciated.

Hey all,

With the increased threat of threats out there, I am wondering if I am doing enough for my clients and would like some sort of input as to what I should be doing more of to combat the threat of cybercrime

My usual Firewall install for a client is a Sophos XG with Threat protection, IPS & AV enabled with SSL VPN setups for people accessing the network. I suppose I am one of those people who want to make sure I have done everything to protect a network and want to ask a stupid question.. when it comes to RDP brute force attacks, if we don't have any WAN>LAN rules to open RDP ports, are we safe or do we need to physically go in and disable RDP protocol on every machine.

I know the threat has been around for ages but I need to get some clarification on this so any serious answers accepted, please.

Hi all,

With the recent patch of 1903, it seems dialling VPNs from the system tray is a bit of an issue. Still possible to dial these using rashphone . But wondering if anyone knows if there is a permanent fix or patch incoming?

Hello, i upgrade to windows 10 and have a share folder.  When I VPN into my network I cannot access that share folder. Any thoughts which security issues I might have?  I have tried pinging the device and can't get a ping either.  I can ping other things on the network such as the router or printers.

The network connection between your computer and the vpn server could not be established because t he remote server is not responding. Is the message I am getting. It's strange, for a while this VPN was working with no issues and now is rejecting certain connections. I am however able to connect to the VPN with my iphone but with a windows PC, I'm having trouble. I'm operating with a Ubquiti gateway, on a comcast connection with a static address. Any ideas I could try?

Can PPTP VPN be made to go both ways?

Windows Server A connects via PPTP to Windows Server B.

Server A can ping anything on Server B's network but Server B cannot ping anything on Server A's network.

Is there a way to make this two-way?

Only Server B is running RRAS

My current Exchange Server is now very old and does not provide connectivity with the later versions of Outlook which provide far better features.

To explain.  My Exchange Server services email for several domains that belong to a number off my clients.  Some clients have several email addresses and others have just one email address.  All email is router to my server via the Barracuda Networks Anti-Spam portal.  

Mailboxes on my server are accessed using Outlook Over VPN.  The VPNs are hardware bases (router to router) using fixed IP addresses.  Mobile platforms using iPhones, Windows Phones and Android Phones are supported.

I need to close down the server and migrate the email to Office 365 servers.

The procedure to transfer the data doesn't worry me but I have questions.

Firstly in which to continue to operate as an IT service provider to my clients I need to know if I can provide Office 365 licenses that I buy or should each customer have their own licenses - I suspect the latter.

Secondly if I am to have any future role it will be a support role for Office 365 operation (I have some experience with this already), so I would set-up Office 365 on their platforms and connect their mobile platforms to Office 365 email.  I am aware that there seems to be issues in syncing calendars across Windows and IOS devices - I tried some third party software but it wasn't easy to use and wasn't reliable.

Thirdly I feel that I still need to wash email through …
