VPN with Microsoft MN-700 Router

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windows.networking.wireless (More info?)

Hello,

I just moved to a home offce.
I am trying to access my business network with VPN (Virtual Private Network)
and of course: I CAN'T !

Here is my situtation:

1) I have a Windows XP Pro desktop

2) I connect to Internet via a cable modem with a Microsoft MN-700 router.
This is a wirelss router; however , my desktop is "wired" to the router (I
use the wireless features for another laptop at home)

3) If I don't use the router, the VPN works fine
But with the network in the loop, it just doesn't work.

4) My VPN client is Contivity EXTRANET VPN Client V04_15.06 aka NORTEL
ipsecshm

5) I have all the required info (User Name, Passcode, Destination Address
etc...)

6) When I try to connect to the business network , I get the following
message:
"Login Failure due to: Remote host not responding"


My suspiscion is that the Microsoft MN-700 router is not properly configured
to allow VPN access.
The only way I can modify the settings for the router is by using the
Microsoft Broadband Utility. However, in the user's guide, I couldn't find
any information on how to set up the router for VPN.
I looked online too but the explanations are not clear. I see a lot of posts
talking about Port Forwarding but nothing in detail really.

Can someone please help me to configure the router via the Broadband Utility
but telling exactly what settings I need to change.

Thank you so much for your help.
Hopefull that will solve my problem.
