Windows 7: Error 800 when trying to remote connect via VPN

14 Jun 2010   #11

Windows XP to Windows 7

Ok I was actually able to connect using my works VPN address, BUT once it completed the connection it still showed my computer, with my stuff on the hard drive, plus it didn't have internet connection. Any ideas?

Windows XP to Windows 7

Not quite but I'm closer. Like I said in my last post, I am now able to log in but my computer still displays the computer I'm logging in from instead of the one I'm logging in to.

user 1, 2, and 3 will all connect to the WAN ip address.
The network that the VPN server (Host) is on should have TCP 1723 forwarded to the VPN server's local IP.
When configuring my router, it requires a description, a port (1723) & the private IP's. It wont let me set up more than 1 with the same port, so how do I do this? Don't I need one for each private IP that will be wanting to connect remotely?
