I've set everything the way it's supposed to be according to the guides here and it still won't work. I get a generic failure message, it never gets to authentication or anything. Looks like it doesn't even find the router, as if the IP address was bogus or something. I've enabled remote management on the router and I can connect to it remotely. So, I know the IP address is right and the router really is on the other end. The client side is behind a WRT54G router, although I have tried it with the client computer connected directly to the DSL modem with no luck. I've gone over everthing in the guides at least twice. At this point I'm assuming that there is a basic connectivity issue between me and the router, but I can't figure out what it is. It's related to VPN traffic because all other forms of communication work. I'm a network tech and the company I work for uses the same ISP I have at home. I'm sure the ISP isn't the problem, VPN works fine at work and I've talked to their top network guy about it. Any ideas?
