Remote Desktop through PPTP

Hi all

I am having trouble connecting to client's SBS server using Terminal Services over VPN from an XP pro box.

I'm pretty sure that this used to work from the XP box. I can successfully establish a VPN session to their network, ping their machines by IP or NetBIOS name, browse shares / admin shares, connect to the remote server's event viewer/compmgmt/etc snapins but I cannot connect directly to the server by RDP.

I can connect from any of my W2K servers, though.

When accessing those services that I am able to there is plenty of activity / bytes sent & received over the vpn session but when I use RDP the activity is over the LAN connection only.

The only thing that has changed recently is the install of Virtual PC (which adds a protocol to the LAN connection) but disabling this doesn't help.

I had also installed the updated RDP client but it makes no odds whether I use the mstsc.exe in program files (new) or system32 (original).

In fact, I've just tested this to other clients' servers, all over VPN, and the results are the same.

RDP to clients directly (where 3389 is forwarded) works fine, as do RDP sessions locally.

Any ideas...? It's not desperate but I'd like to get to the bottom of this.

Thanks

john

Copied and pasted:

---------------------------
Remote Desktop Disconnected
---------------------------
The client could not connect to the remote computer.

Remote connections might not be enabled or the computer might be too busy to accept new connections.
It is also possible that network problems are preventing your connection.

Please try connecting again later. If the problem continues to occur, contact your administrator.
---------------------------
OK Help
---------------------------

Sorry - I should have included this originally. The problem appears to be a routing issue, however the routing tables, after connecting by vpn, are the same on XP and W2K. Just that XP doesn't send a single byte over the vpn link when running teh RDP client. Makes no difference whether I use hostname, IP or full domain name.

How many routes are made to the remote network? If you are getting no
traffic over the VPN link when trying to access a resource that is on
the remote network, then it definately is a routing problem..

One point to consider, though - are the two networks (your network and
the remote network) on the same IP address space (i.e., 192.168.1.x)?
If so, this is probably the cause of your problem...

Hi

Remote network is 192.168.0.0/24 and I'm 192.168.200.0/24.

It's definitely this mschine - an XP laptop connects without a hitch.

All traffic except RDP travels over the VPN link.

Routing table is:

Active Routes:
Network Destination Netmask Gateway Interface Metric
0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 192.168.0.110 192.168.0.110 1
0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 192.168.200.1 192.168.200.50 21
xx.xx.18.58 255.255.255.255 192.168.200.1 192.168.200.50 20

224.0.0.0 240.0.0.0 192.168.200.50 192.168.200.50 20
224.0.0.0 240.0.0.0 192.168.0.110 192.168.0.110 1
255.255.255.255 255.255.255.255 192.168.200.50 192.168.200.50 1
Default Gateway: 192.168.0.110
===========================================================================
Persistent Routes:
None

Ping by host name works:

Pinging bfpw2k [192.168.0.30] with 32 bytes of data:

Reply from 192.168.0.30: bytes=32 time=63ms TTL=128
Reply from 192.168.0.30: bytes=32 time=66ms TTL=128
Reply from 192.168.0.30: bytes=32 time=71ms TTL=128
Reply from 192.168.0.30: bytes=32 time=63ms TTL=128

Just RDP which bombs.

Thanks

john

What happens if you run "telnet bfpw2k 3389" from a command prompt?
