Need help setting up VPN
I am trying to set up a VPN between home and my main office computer. I am doing this in anticipation of a software upgrade that changes from single to multiple workstations.
I have done some studying but on some areas probably don't know how to ask the right question.
The home computer is running Windows 7 Pro 64 while the office is Win 7 ultimate 64 - everything up to date. Running Comodo Firewall and Symantec Endpoint Protection on both ends. Using Netgear wireless routers on both ends - 3700 at home and 4000 at office - although the computers are wired connections.
My service at home is Charter cable; office is DSL Bellsouth I think (Provided me - have no control).
When I run ipconfig both are listed as 192.168.1.X - prob assigned by the router.
I have set up port forwarding on the office router. Do I need to do this at home also?
I have set up the VPN connections on both ends but cannot connect - error 800.
I have a feeling there is more to this like what IP address do I need to be using?
I am also not sure what there may be upstream of my office computer in terms of switches, routers, etc.
I would appreciate any help anyone is willing to provide.
