Netgear VPN

Archived from groups: comp.dcom.vpn (More info?)

I am trying to setup a VPN from my home to work across a netgear WGR
614 router and cable modem.
I am using Check Point VPN-1 Securemote NG with Application
Intelligence (R55) Build Number: 082 on my laptop running Windows XP
and at work we have Check Point Firewall-1 NG with Application
Intelligence (R55) running.

When I connect my laptop directly to the cable modem then the VPN
works perfectly and I can route to my work servers. However, if I
connect via the Netgear router I can connect successfully but cannot
access an resources. When doing a trace route I can see that I get to
the gateway at work but no further.

Does anybody know how I can set this up? Do I need to set any
port-forwarding and if so which ports?

I have tried emailing Netgear support but they have yet to come back
to me and their website support about VPN's is pretty useless.

Thanks for your help

    What VPN? You are aware that there is more than one kind of VPN - and
    that in general none of us can read your mind.

    Anything past the router is non-routable. That's the reason NAT acts
    like a firewall. If you could get into your LAN through the router
    from the outside, then so could someone else.

    You should be talking to Netgear about how to set up their router for
    the particular (unspecifiec) VPN you are trying to set up. If its the
    Microsoft PPTP VPN, then you have to forward port 1723 and pass
    protocol 47 (GRE).

    Call them. People who have Netgear routers swear by them. John Navas
    is one of those, so you should ask him:

    Otherwise try one of the specialty forums for Netgear. Here's a
    popular one:

    Look for the word "Forums" on the left navbar.
