    Hi Everybody,

    I recently have purchased a BEFSX41 VPN router and now want to build up a VPN to get remote access with my notebook.

    The router is connected with the internet via DSL and DYNDNS.ORG. The notebook goes into the WEB via UMTS. I have a BINTEC IPSEC client on my notebook and could establish a VPN to the router (at least it seems so ;-), but...

    I could ping to my router ( and to my BEWF11S4 ( being connected to the router as switch, but not to any other device in the home-net. I have disabled DMZ, I have disabled all firewalls on the PCs. I have no static nor dynamic routing configured on my BEFSX41.

    Does anybody have an idea ? - I´m a total newbie on this topic

    Thank´s a lot in advance and all the best from Germany

    Do the PC's on your home network have their default gateway set as ?

    I'm not familiar with that VPN client so can't advise what settings you should be using :unsure:

    What firewalls are the PC's running and how did you disable them?

    my PCs have all the Bitdefender Suite. I have disabled the firewall from the Bitdefender dashboard. WinXP SP2 Firewall is also disabled. Curiosly I couldn´t ping my satellite box (dBOX 2) either - and I don´t believe that this has a firewall.

    ;-) Bonzo
