Specs: Windows server 2003 VPN, n/a
Hi,
I have a User that is currently in Singapore and is trying to access our network via our MS 2003 VPN

The user is behind a firewall at his location in Singapore, and cannot connect to are VPN.
What ports does he have to have opened on that firewall to be able to access our VPN?
or do i need to open up addition ports on my side to let him in?

Is he able to get to the authentication window? Or is the connection blocked before that?

Many places (hotels, etc.) block certain ports at their firewall and will not accommodate a request to open them for obvious security reasons.

Hi,

I believe that he is being blocked before he gets to the to the authentication window

I cannot confirm this because of the time difference between the US and Singapore.
but i know that the IT dept there in Singa pore is asking what ports need to be opened so that he can connect to are vpn.

so any type of information that i can send him would be a help

Their IT people should know what ports they blocked and which ones need to be opened.
