    Hi,

    I am unable to get a working connection from my Vista home computer to my
    Vista computer at work (my small business). I have set up the client
    computer to accept VPN calls, and I have set up a VPN connection at home.

    Every time I connect, Vista says that the VPN connection has been
    successfully made, and a lot of bytes seems to be sent to the host, but the
    recieved bytes always stop at 323 bytes. And the connection is unusable, I
    cannot browse by using \\computername\sharename or by ip.

    I have tried by turning off the firewall on the host, but it doesn't help. I
    also checked the logs, and it seems that on the host computer, the
    connection is at first accepted, but then immediately (and silently)
    disconnected. The client however always thinks it is connected. On XP,
    setting up VPN was fairly easy, but on Vista it seems totally impossible. I
    have also tried different settings (connecting unencrypted etc) but nothing
    helps.

    What gives?

    PS. At home, I'm running Vista Ultimate and at work Vista Business

  4. If the VPN client PPTP IP is 192.168.2.156, the server IP could be 192.168.2.155 (or you can find the server IP from the details of the TCP/IP). Can you ping the server PPTP IP, for example, 192.168.2.155?

    Hi, in Network Connections->Status I found the server ip to be 192.168.2.150, and yes, I can ping it (client ip 192.168.2.157).


    If the VPN client PPTP IP is 192.168.2.156, the server IP could be 192.168.2.155 (or you can find the server IP from the details of the TCP/IP). Can you ping the server PPTP IP, for example, 192.168.2.155?

  6. If you can ping the VPN host, that is good and you should be able to access it using IP. If you do want to use name, you may want to use lmhosts. These links may help,

    Hi,

    I am unable to get a working connection from my Vista home computer to my
    Vista computer at work (my small business). I have set up the client
    computer to accept VPN calls, and I have set up a VPN connection at home.

    Every time I connect, Vista says that the VPN connection has been
    successfully made, and a lot of bytes seems to be sent to the host, but the
    recieved bytes always stop at 323 bytes. And the connection is unusable, I
    cannot browse by using \\computername\sharename or by ip.

    I have tried by turning off the firewall on the host, but it doesn't help. I
    also checked the logs, and it seems that on the host computer, the
    connection is at first accepted, but then immediately (and silently)
    disconnected. The client however always thinks it is connected. On XP,
    setting up VPN was fairly easy, but on Vista it seems totally impossible. I
    have also tried different settings (connecting unencrypted etc) but nothing
    helps.

    What gives?

    PS. At home, I'm running Vista Ultimate and at work Vista Business

    Hi, sorry, but that is not the case. I can ping, but I can't do anything else. If I write the address like \\192.168.2.150\Public in an address window, Vista thinks for a minute or two, and then says that it is unavailable? Also, my internet connectivity is cut off.
    So, have you got any ideas what to try next?

    Regards Joni70

    Hi, in Network Connections->Status I found the server ip to be 192.168.2.150, and yes, I can ping it (client ip 192.168.2.157).


    If the VPN client PPTP IP is 192.168.2.156, the server IP could be 192.168.2.155 (or you can find the server IP from the details of the TCP/IP). Can you ping the server PPTP IP, for example, 192.168.2.155?

    OK, this is what my ipconfig results look like after establishing VPN (in
    this case, I used the default gateway on the remote network option for
    tcp/ip, so I also lost my internet connectivity):

    Also, I can connect to the work computer using Remote Desktop just fine. But
    VPN simply won't work...
