virtual private network

By msfiroudis ·
Hi,
I'm currently trying to connect a win2000 through netzero(a free isp) to another win2000.I can connect but I'm unable to browse the network.I'm not sure what else to do to rectify this problem.It also seems like it's not registering an ip address on the receiving win2000...I hope this is enough info...any help would be appreciated.Thank's in advance

I hope this doesn't entirely discourage you from trying, but my personal experience with NetZero and VPNs has been universally unsatisfactory.

I have not been able to determine if it is the NetZero software, which is horribly invasive (worse than AOL's adapter by a long shot), or the network policies about non-http traffic, but I've just never seen it work well.

It seems that in some cases, you really do get what you pay for.

If netzero does not allow traffic besides http, you will never be able to connect and send data.
Ypu where telling that you seem to be able to connect, but you cantbrowse the network.
If you are using pptp it uses gre which is a bit modified.
Lots of ISP's use grp for their routing information, so they will filter it out at the border of their networks.
This means that pptp will not woork, but you might! be able to use l2tp with ipsec.
If they really filter everything accept http there is no way for you to connect, so you must use another isp (for both sender and receiver)
Good luck
