Using a PPP vpn connection between two 2820 routers. The connection is established between the two, and if I run a ping diagnostic test from the router web interface they can both ping the opposite router and get a reply.

The problem comes when i try to ping a router from an opposite computer. I get a timed out error and I can't access any of the computers in each of the opposite remote sites. Do i need some static routers created maybe?

Any ideas?

My VPN has established OK but I can't access anything through it. What are the most common reasons for this?

1. The device(s) you are trying to access have software firewalls installed on them, which are rejecting your remote access. You will need to either Disable the software firewalls or configure them to 'trust' your local network/subnet.
2. The local subnet that your computer is on is the same as the remote subnet that you are trying to access, causing routing to fail. You need to ensure that the two subnets are logically different from each other.
3. The Default Gateway of the device you are trying to access is not set as the VPN Server you are connecting to. You will either need to adjust the Default Gateway of the remote device or setup a Static Route on the remote Default Gateway to re-direct traffic back to the local VPN Server.
