Specs: Server 2003 R2
Trying to establish VPN access for a Windows
2003 Server R2. This machine is part of a 3
computer network accessing the internet
through a DI-524 DLink router. Router handles
DHCP. IP for server is 192.168.0. 250. Setup
VPN on server for IP address range
192.168.0.250-252. On router forwarded port
1723 to 192.168.0.250. Enabled VPN pass
through on router. Determined external IP via
whatismyip.com. Used that external ip when
trying to connect to the server via VPN from
another machine. Never able to make a
connection. Obviously I am missing a step
somewhere. Any ideas would be greatly
appreciated. Also, when the VPN option is
configured on the server, the server is not
accessible by the other machines on the local
network. Suggestions gladly accepted!

Did you do this command?
http://www.externalip:portnumber

your vpn server have a static ip at .250?

what happens if you just open the port instead of forward it?

Thanks for the reply. Yes I did try just the
www.externalip:portnumber but no luck. I think the server is
setup with a static ip but not sure. Easy to check. As to the
forward vs open question, I could not find anything like that in
the setup for this router (DI-524). All I could find was the
setup for forwarding specific ports to a specific ip. There is a
checkbox for passthrough VPN. Maybe that is opening port
1723?
