Check DNS and Gateway

by jdclyde In reply to PPTP VPN issues

When they establish the pptp connection, they will get all the NIC info supplied.

Have you done an "ipconfig /all" on a remote system to see if it is being given a valid gateway and DNS server?

That would be my guess.

If not, repost as a Tech Q&A as this is a technical question in search of an answer. You will get a faster response that way.

Good luck.

Most likely your computer is set to use your remote gateway (VPN). type route /print at the command prompt to see what your default gateway is. If it's your VPN's gateway, you can change it in the VPN connection's properties.

PPTP VPN and Internet issue

by squesada In reply to PPTP VPN issues

Yes, you can do it. I did it configuring on the properties on the TCP/IP Settings, Advance button, and on the General tab, check the Use default gateway on remote network. Also I configured the on the Control Panel, on Internet Options, and then, on the connections tab, clic on the VPN connection, clic on the settings button, and check the Proxy Server checkbox, and include the info of your proxy server and also the port. I think you should check the Bypass proxy server for local addresses. I hope this works for you!

Yes, select the VPN and go to properties. Go to the Networking Tab, Highlight Internt Protocol TCP/IP and then select the Properties button. Select the Advanced Button, then uncheck "Use default Gateway on remote network". Hope this helps.
