VPN Routing Problems...Cannot route from server side to client sid


G

Guest

Hello,

I have recently installed a W2K RRAS with one NIC for a PPTP VPN server. The
VPN server is behind a firewall and all PPTP traffic is routed correctly.

VPN connections can be made to the server without any problems. From the
client side, i can ping hosts on the remote (server-side) network without any
problem.

The problem is that i cannot ping hosts in the client-side from nowhere in
the server-side. Firewalls on both side are configured correctly to allow
traffic.

Additionally, from the VPN server, i cannot ping any host on the client-side.

Do you have any suggestions?

Thank you in advance.

That's how it works. a PPTP VPN is a client-to-network connection. If
you need a network-to-network connection, pick up a couple of VPN
routers and set up an IPSec tunnel.

Kurt,

when i tried it using 2 NIC on the VPN this was working with no problem.

But now i get this problem? I am sure that it should work some how.

You can share the connection or maybe set up routing between 2 NICs.
Sharing will only allow computers behind the client to connect to the
server network, computers on the server network won't be able to
initiate a connection the other way (except to the actual pptp client).
I had a setup like that for a long time, where I made a PPTP VPN
connection from a server at home to work, shared the VPN connection
(just one NIC in the server, and added a route to the work subnet to my
main workstation at home via the home server's LAN IP address.
