    I have a PPTP server at work which I've used to connect from my laptop from many different locations. From public WIFI access points, my parents house, hotels, etc.

    I have a WRV200 (Firmware Version: 1.0.39-ETSI) at home and haven't been able to get the PPTP connection working properly. I can connect, log-in and access shared folders but I have two main issues:

    1.- VNC connections don't work. Ultra VNC connects to the server, prompts for login and then shows only a black screen until crashes a few minutes later.
    2.- There are two HTTP servers that I need to access at work which simply don't respond.

    I have tried connecting my notebook directly to my Internet provider's modem and everything works perfectly. So I know the problem is WRV200.

    I have enabled IPSec, PPTP and L2TP Passthrough and disabled every firewall protection and it still doesn't work.

    Does anyone have an idea of where the problem might be?

    Are you port forwarding the correct ports for VNC?

    TCP port 5800 VNC web-browser server listens on port 5800 + display number.
    TCP port 5900 Default port for VNC (display 0). VNC server listens on port 5900 + display number. The VNC viewer connects on the port.
    TCP port 5901 Port used for VNC display 1.
    TCP port 5902 Port used for VNC display 2.

    Also have you port forwarded port 80 to the Server for http?

    Hi Toxic,
    Please correct me if I'm wrong but as far as I Know once you set up a PPTP tunnel and the router has PPTP passthrough enabled there's no need for any port forwarding.
    Anything that comes and goes through the encrypted tunnel should be transparent for the router.
    Am I wrong?
