can i set the VPN port for client?


J

johan

I have 2 win XP computers in the office.
I have set the office ADSL router to direct port 1723 to
192.168.0.2,
and port 1724 to 192.168.0.3, hoping that I would be able
to choose which computer I want to log in to (from my
home computer).
Connecting to the computer at port 1723 is no problem,
but how can I change the port that my VPN connection uses
in Win XPPro? I tried to set the target IP to
XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX:1724 but did not work...HELP
please! /Johan

Don't bother... You can't specify PPTP VPN port settings like you can
remote desktop, web, etc.

However, once you are connected via the VPN, you should be able to
access files/shares from either computer...

Thanks for info Jeffrey.

So does this also mean I can not have two VPN tunnels at
the same time through my router (Netgear WGR614v2)?
Netgear's home page brags about "multi VPNs/VPN pass-
throughs"....how is this possible then?

What they may mean by that is that you can have multiple client connections
from the inside of the Netgear going to VPN servers on the outside. You may
need to talk to NetGear for clarity.

You can have multiple VPN's going to a single endpoint behind the
firewall/router.... However, this would require a server OS since XP
is limited to a single incoming connection...
