VPN server on win xp home ?


J

Jim Conrad

I have gone thru several web page insttructions for setup.

I am going thru a Linksys wrt54g.router which I just upgraded the
firmware.

I am testing it internally on another workstation with XP pro.
the router is set to forward on port 1723.
I am using the external address on the router, have tried using
xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:1723 as well, l it immediately fails.
Also have tried logging in directly to the internally ip 192.168....

On the proposed VPN server(XP HOME) I went thru the set up connection
wizard. allowing login account holder acccess.

I cannot think of anything else
Is there hope ?

I am not sure what you want to do? What do you mean "have tried using xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:1723"? Do you try to setup VPN or use Remote desktop? If you are using RDC, you need to open port 3389.
