Configuring RAS for a VPN connection.

By Mr. Origami ·
In the RAS Services properties, clicked on Network. For the TCP/IP configuration, I need help. We do not have a DHCP server set up here. The client machine that needs to VPN here is on a cable modem and has an IP address assigned by his ISP. How do I configure the RAS properties IP address for the client? Anything I assign will be on a different network than the ISP assigned -- so can that client have 2 IP addresses? 1 assigned by the cable modem ISP, and 1 assigned by our VPN server? Whenever he tries to VPN, an error occurs. (I guess the question boils down to this: How do I configure RAS for a VPN connection so a user with a cable modem can connect via VPN?)

Configuring RAS for a VPN connection.

by boetim In reply to Configuring RAS for a VPN ...

Using VPN is just like setting up a dialup RAS connection except you are using a IP address instead of dialing a phone number and that you have VPN adaptors instead of dialout adaptors. If you are using DHCP then they will signon just like they wasusing DUN. Otherwise you will need to assign him the IP address. One thing is that you may make sure that the RAS service is started in Control Panel. Also make sure that both VPN adaptors are set up correctly on both ends and that he is trying to connect to the right IP address.

hope this helps.

If your client machine is on WIN9x OS, then your only possibility to assign the 2nd IP address is to add the 2nd NIC. This allows your machine to multi-homed. Configure the 1st NIC to the ISP's assigned IP and the 2nd NIC's set to static IP address in your VPN.

If it is a NT V4.0 client machine, have you tried assigning multiple IP addresses to one NIC? Please explore and refer to Q149426 which refers to multiple IP address to a single NIC.

Good luck
