My aim is to map network drives across the internet.
With that in mind, I kicked of my first VPN server this morning on my
WinXP-pro box and it picked up the VPN address 126.96.36.199 (it's
internal NAT address is 192.168.0.102).
Then on another windows 2000 box I ran a VPN client and asked it to
connect to 192.168.0.102. This worked great. My windows 2000 box
connected, and got it's very own vpn address: 188.8.131.52. I was able to
map drives and everything. I was not able, however, to browse the
internet on the VPN client - which is fine for now.
This is wonderful and all, but this was setup using internal addresses,
which is not exactly what I need.
So I port forwarded 1723, 500, 50, 51 to go to my VPN server and from
the client I tried to setup a VPN connection to the global ip address
of the router (a DLINK 614+). This connection failed miserably. Am I
missing something ? Does my router need to support VPN or something ?
