Windows 7: VPN Help required

veldthui, try disabling every traffic filtering from VPN interface <--> LAN. If I understand correctly, VPN should have it's own "virtual" interface, and it is different than your "WAN" interface. Go check that out.

Success at last - of sorts.

Decided to try TheGreenBow IPSec client software as they have a test server. Tried it and it connected fine but could not get to their drives either. Turns out my Laptop Firewall is blocking it somehow even though I told it to let things through. It is McAfee IS.
Tried my router again and established the IPSec tunnel after a bit of trial and error. Pinged the machines. The router and 1 XP responded but 1 XP and the Vista machine did not. Tried to map a drive and it connected and showed me the contents straight away.
Thinking it was the firewall all the time I tried the PPTP again and while this time it would allow me to map the drive it would not read anything off it. It may have cached the data so it may not have worked afterall.

Anyway I know I can use the IPSec tunnel (although the Greenbow client is quite expensive though nice) so I at least know I can get it working.

Just have to work out why the firewall is blocking it as I don't like my firewall off while connected. I see my router blocking a heap of DOS attacks quite often.

Glad you got it.

I got tripped up by the McAfee firewall in the past as well. I ended up disabling it then just removing it completely because it was way too intrusive.

zzz2496: Nice assist!

Click the little triangle up next to the rep icon. Send a message to ask the thread to be solved.

I went ahead and took care of it. Hope you don't mind.
