Need Help Setting VPN Server

By sagar.rathod ·
Hello Guys,
I want to set up a VPN server on my client side. Client has DSL connection (no static IP address). Is it possible to set VPN server without having any static IP address over DSL connection. Please help me out with all details..
Regards,
Saggy

yeah it will work, but everytime it changes you have to tell everyone the new address.

Sometimes using the name instead of the address doesn't work so great with VPN. A lot of the problems we've seen with VPN center on the user typing in the domain name and the client can't find the VPN server to authenticate with. If they use the IP address, they are able to.

It may be technical possible. But practically will have problem as when ever ip is changed you have to reconfigure the VPN Client to connect to new IP.

You may also need to check with your ISP. They may not allow this type of activity on their network, since you could potentially increase your bandwidth.

static ip ! the best hassle free set up . Like everybody else said. To setup VPN server I suggest you use the RRAS from the admin tools and use the wizard. Don't forget to allow access etc. for the remote VPN client on the server . On the client side , assuming you are using XP ..use the add network connection and click on the setting up a VPN client option . Follow the wizard again. Was that what you meant by explain in detail ?

You can also try dyndns.org which binds a FQDN to your ip address whenever you connect. So for example it could bind 34.56.78.90 to myhouse.dyndns.org.

We use Netgear FVS318 VPN routers for all our VPN connections. We have had to use this when some clients had ADSL connections that you couldn't purchase static IPs for.

By binding our IP with dyndns.org, is it secure?
