i can't connect form my home computer to a VPN network at my job i have set VPN the conection from my house and when i try to connect it says that there is a problem with the VPN or actually with my attemp to access that network, looks like is the router's firewall, i accesed to my router and i saw a log file of my router and its security and there its the log telling me that is blocking the ip address where im trying to connect, i went to the router firewall configuration and i tryed to make a rule for my ip address so i can pass through the firewall with any problem but i got a error message trying to make the rule...

    Have you tried it without the firewall?

    See if you can get a connection without.. Then work with the firwall

    what about NAT and the error that i get? is the OS involved in this situation? i guess maybe i have to set up something in the server, axctually i made the account to go over there, but i dont know if i have to enable anything or set any permissions?????????

    not sure if I have the right end of the stick here but it sounds like you have the router performing NAT at home?

    If thats the case then you will not be able to run a VPN connection as VPN does not work with NAT. Due to the fact that NAT has to alter the packets therefore breaking the VPN.

    hope that helps even if only a little, and I'm sure that if I have that wrong then someone will set me right!! icon_lol.gif

    also just noticed that the address you have for your work server is a private address, you don't have a public address for that end do you?

    Not sure what OS or protocol you're using for your VPN, but while patching this system at work I found this. Seems to describe your problem dead on. Hope it helps.

Users should download this update if they use IPSec and/or L2TP Virtual Private Network (VPN) connections. After you install this item, you may have to restart your computer. Read more...
