Guest

I'm trying to setup a test RRAS VPN server on my local network and keep
getting error 678 trying to connect to it. This is trying to connect
to the local ip address directly Help!

Windows 2000 server SP4 with all patches, 1 nic.
DSl connection into a Linksys WRT54G

When I setup Routing and Remote Access Wizrad, I select <no internet
connection>, then my Local Area Connection for VPN Network selection, auto IP
Address assignment, no to Radius.

Check the RRAS setup. 678 means the server is not responding.

Any tips for the RRAS setup using 1 nic? I've outlined my settings below..

Open the RRAS console and have a look about. Do you see the miniports
for VPN? If you do, you have configured it to receive VPN connections.

Error 678 is a pretty useless message. If you are using PPTP, set the
client to PPTP rather than automatic. This should get you are different
error message.

There are four basic things that are required when making a connection
after you have configured the server for remote access.

1. The server must be reachable from the client.
2. The user must have a valid username and password on the server.
3. Remote access policy must allow a connection.
4. The server must be able to allocate an IP address to the client.

Yes i see the WAN miniports for PPTP and L2TP

I do a netstat -na and see port 1723 as listening

If I do a telnet 127.0.0.1 1723 on the machine - it does not blank the
screen and says "Could not open a connection..."

Suggestions?

Fixed!

The fix turns out to be uninstalling some spyware scanning software...

Hope this helps someone else someday.

It may well have - I've got the same problem and Pipex are baffled! I'm going to try this now - if I don't post again it didn't work for me!
