Hello All:

My WindowsXP VPN server is in the states. My xp VPN client is in Iraq & the client has the 'USE DEFAULT GATEWAY ON REMOTE NETWORK' option DISABLED. All firewalls disabled at server & client.I Obtain ip & DNS address automatically, via the VPN SERVER and CLIENT & ICS is enabled on the client. I cannot browse web pages when connected to the VPN. Also, when I attempt to connect my XBOX360 to XBOXLIVE via ICS when connected to VPN, I get a 'DNS FAILED.....DNS Lookup Status... A DNS server could not be reached....Please verify the DNS settings for this network configuration'. Any suggestions ?

You may ask, why connect to the VPN to connect to xboxlive. I purchased content via xboxlive, while I was in the states. However, my XBOX malfunctioned in Iraq & I shipped it back then I received a new one. I attempted to retrieve my purchased content to my new xbox & received a 'Content is not available at your location' message. I called Xbox support, only to receive a 'Sorry, wait till you return to the states in 8 months' response.


Based on my situation, would connecting my XBOX through ICS to my U.S VPN tag my XBOX ip as originating within the US & allow me to retrieve my purchased content in Iraq??

Also, I'm thinking about setting up linux to tunnel but I don't know if it's a viable option. The Xbox uses port UDP 88, 3074 & TCP 3074. If anyone has any suggestions or solutions that would make this work, please feel free to help. It's frustrating here and a solution would definitely make life easier.
Thanks in advance!
