Can't connect remotely VPN

Discussion in 'Windows Small Business Server' started by Catherine Allen, Apr 24, 2004.

  1. Just upgraded from SBS4.5 to SBS2003, (was always able to
    connect remotely with SBS4.5 using dialup). One NIC and
    server has dial-up connection to internet. Ran Remote
    Connection Wizard and install SBS Connection on client.
    VPN timesout returning Error 800...
    I had assumed that whenever server was connected to
    internet, (via its dialup connection), that client would
    be able to connect via VPN. Is that assumption wrong?
    There used to be white papers on remote connections, is
    there anything like that for SBS2003?
    (Dialup connection also not working, but I should be able
    to sort that out.)
    Thanks.

    Are you trying to connect to the server by dialing up to RRAS? Or are you trying to connect using a VPN connection?

    Which wizard did you use? The one in Server Managment, or the one in RRAS console?

    I used the Server Management wizard. I am trying both
    dialup and VPN in the hopes that something will work. (I
    just keep switching the Properties on the Connect to
    Small Business Server program.) Still no luck VPN. When
    I dial-up the server answers, allows me to log in, but
    won't let me see the server, or any other workstations on
    the network, (saying I do not have access rights, even
    when I log on as Administrator). Can ping server ok via
    dialup.
    Any thoughts?

    RRAS? Or are you trying to connect using a VPN
    connection?

  4. Is the IP-range on the VPN-client different from the SBS-IP-range? Can you
    vpn within the network?

  5. Client IP address for Internet Protocol TCPIP is
    10.10.10.2 and for SBS 10.0.0.3. Should I be changing
    client to obtain IP address automatically? Shouldn't SBS
    Connection Manager have taken care of this?

    Can't try VPNing within the network anytime soon as it is
    500 miles away.

    Thanks,
    Catherine

  6. Client VPN should obtain an IP automatically from the SBS. If that client is
    on its own network, than the IP-range should be different from the SBS. Post
    the complete ipconfig/all from the vpn client when vpn-ed in.

  7. So your clients are assigned IP Addresses from the DHCP server on the SBS box?

    Or are they statically assigned on the client side?

    On the surface 10.10.10.2 and for SBS 10.0.0.3 would appear to be on different networks, unless of course your subnet mask for both is 255.0.0.0.

    If this is your subnet mask, then you should be able to see the SBS Server, and internal clients (assuming they also are assigned with a 10.x.x.x and a mask of 255.0.0.0).

    More than likely though you have a 255.255.255.0 subnet mask in which case these IP addresses would be on different networks.

    This would still work if you had a static route on the client machine for the 10.0.0.x network.

    A few things I need to know from you are:

    What is your subnet mask for your server, internal clients (please also give a sample IP Address for this one), and VPN client?

    Is your VPN Client IP assigned by the SBS DHCP Server, or is it statically assigned by you?

    Also what is acting as your firewall? For VPN to work, port 1723 on the firewall must be opened allowing GRE Protocol, and pointing to the SBS Box
