We have currently have a network setup but we would like to implement a VPN. Here are the hardwares and software that we have

- Linksys RV082 Router (with dual broadband connected)
- Windows 2003 Server (with dual Broadcom NetXtreme Gigabit Ethernet)
- NIC1:
- NIC2:
- Multiple Windows XP/NT workstations

I tried following the setup that is in Microsoft's forums but our network goes down after i implement the VPN.

Someone please help!

Take a look at OpenVPN or Hamachi. These are client based.

Thanks, but i need help in setting up the VPN server.

So far here's what i've tried with the following settings:

Router: LAN

Server with (Dual NIC) that has DC, DHCP, DNS, IIS and File services running.
IP -
Gateway -

IP -
Gateway -
WINS - none

All work stations are in the IP range 192.168.0.x.

I was able to use the services on the server, however, i could not connect to the internet from the work stations. So really, what i'd like to know is how can i reconfigure my settings above so that the work stations will be able to connecto the internet.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Never have setup a vpn server, but on routers I believe the subnets need to be the same for the connection to work. Maybe this will help.

Not sure if you just posted this wrong but check your gateway setup. You have your lan going to 0.5 instead of 1.5.

No i didn't post it wrong and if i do that then i won't need the WAN.

I just want to share the WAN's internet connection with the LAN. Someone help?
