i'm confused. why don't you set up a network behind the DSL modem with a router. It is much easier to share files. the way you have it now, you have to go over the internet, which is a bit more complicated.

First of all thanks for your reply silverhazesurfer and sorry for not providing full details.

I've been trying (unsuccessfully) to do this for some time now, and am getting pretty frustrated.

I would like to create a VPN connection between my laptop (running Windows XP), and my small office network (also running Windows XP).

I have a beetel modem,i dont know that it is capable of establishing a VPN connection or not. Although my ISP uses a dynamic IP address.

What I do not understand, is how to configure the VPN 'Tunnel' to make it possible to establish a connection. All of the Windows tutorials are pretty basic about how to set up windows to make and/or recieve VPN connections, but nothing seems to address the router setup, or how Windows needs to be configured specifically to the router configuration.

Any help would be appreciated, especially a pointer to some decent information relative to my situation.

First, you will need to have a static IP address for the "office side" of things. Whatever you want to connect to needs to have a static IP or name. I recommend static IP because in the event of DNS failure, you still have the numbers and won't have to reconfigure. Either that or go with a Dynamic DNS company that will map your IP to whateveryouwantyouraddresstobe.com.


From there:


http://www.techrepublic.com/article/configure-it-quick-configure-windows-xp-professional-to-be-a-vpn-server/1056227


The Windows XP Professional remote access server capabilities are very similar to those available in Windows 2000 Professional. A Windows XP computer can accept a single incoming connection on each interface that can accept a connection. For example, a Windows XP machine can accept incoming connections on each of the following interfaces:

  • Dial-up modem serial interface
  • Infrared interface
  • Parallel port interface
  • VPN interface
While it’s unlikely, a Windows XP Professional machine with the above configuration could conceivably accept up to four simultaneous RAS connections. However, the typical configuration consists of a single RAS client connection, either through a dial-up modem interface or a VPN interface

The steps listed describe how to create the tunnel. The "tunnel" is a virtual concept that is used to describe a secure "encrypted" connection between two machines.

See here for router configuration details.

The best way to do this would be to obtain a VPN router. You configure the VPN connection on the router and apply network settings that allow you access to the internal network. It also will allow you to have more than just one machine connected to the network.

Were you successful with this? If you create the connection on the machine, you will then need to create an outgoing connection on the other that will point to the internet address of the desired target (office).


Things you will need:


- A target machine, connected directly to the internet with two network cards
- A VPN Server connection (office machine running XP with accepting connections configured as by the link above)
- A VPN connection outbound from your laptop that is connected to the internet.


A little bit at a time. This can be confusing if you aren't sure what you're doing.

why so specific with the ports? VPN's allow all traffic via encrypted tunnel.

http://www.linklogger.com/TCP53.htm perhaps?

It sounds as if you have some special program that you are trying to feed into a system via a specific port. I think there is a loss in communication somewhere. I don't know how to help you.
