RV016 and DNS network problem

    We have a RV016 and are working to start VPN access to our current DNS network. We got the VPN setup (we think it's right) and from another location can log into it via WinXP PPTP, but that's it. But they cannot get into the network itself. We've tried to setup a nonbias, wide open VPN but can't get our clients to log into it. The 2 guys we have here to set this up have no VPN experience, and we have scowered this site and several others for tips. We've tried plenty of them, even updating firmware and trying QuickVPN. The other tech is about to smach this thing with a hammer. It's sitting right beside him now. :biggrin:
    We hae no doubt missed something or just totally misconfigured the RV016. If someone can point us in the right direction, I will be forever in your debt. Neither of us have that much networking experience and this project has us at it's mercy. We can be reached several ways, email, phone, cell, this thread. Any help would be reatly appricated.

    What are not able to do? You said you get connected, so once connected what it not doing or not allowing you to do that you think it should?

    I can connect and log into the VPN but I have no network access on the opposing side. I don't even see anything.

    One thing I believe it may be is the subnet. The MsVPN sets you on a 255.255.255.255 sub while everything here ends with 255.0. Could that lone thing cause the problems?

    That subnet is correct, when the pptp application takes over the connection it does so in such a way that it makes that network (the one you are receiving from the connection) the default network. Now back to your connection issue, can you at least ping the machine on the other side, if not then something else is limiting the traffic.

    *Update*
    We setup the Remote Permissions on the actual server machine and we can see the others in the workgroup now. Access to the shares is still limited but "We Have Seen The Light". A bit more tweaking on the server side and we might just have it. *shrug*
    We never tried pinging any of the machines on the other side. We were to concentrated on the VPN itself to think the primary server was the issue. If you have any pointers, oh please, pass them on. Thank you so far. :D

    There are a few around these boards that do or have done alot of pptp implementations. They may have something to say, but i think your good to go. Its very straight forward and it sounds like your already there.
