    VPN Setup Troubleshooting


    by mmbc_voltron ·

    How can I troubleshoot my VPN setup. I have followed 2 book setting up RRAS on server 2003 for VPN on the client side. There are no books that help setting up the router. I have the router setup with the static ip my isp gave me. I wasn’t able to ping my static ip from remote location but I am able to know after turning off the firewall on the router (i think that was it)
    So I can ping the router. I have forward 1743 and 47 to my servers local ip address: (external nic on server)
    internal nic:
    Internal handles DHCP and DNS.
    How can I troubleshoot how far I am going from a remote location. I want to see if I am atleast getting past the router.

    Every company seems to sell there VPN client software. Is this the way to go?
    Where can I get some support that i will be gladly to pay for?

    I get this error on the server side. So I know there is a connection taking
    place just no DHCP address.
    Where should I look?
