I have a small business network I'm trying to set up on a vpn connection. All computer's are using Win XP PRo. I need a VPN Connection to main computer to access SQL Data Base. Simple file sharing is off and all passwords perrmissions are set and allowed. I'm using a Linksis Router with all ports needed forwarding allowed. set DCHP and set static IP address for all conputer. On Main Lan computer I have set up and incoming connection allowed with calling computer to specifi own IP address within ranges. I can do desk top remote to access main computer, but when I try to access using a vpn connecction it keeps comming up with a 721 error remote computer would not respond. I have been fighting with this network for several days and had to change out routers due to none responsive ness of first one. would not accpet commmands. I need to be able to access through TCP/IP in order to make view main computer in workgroup to set path to data Base. Help I'm just ready to through pull out the gun and shoot these machines.

Do you have a WINS or DNS infrastructure in place?

    What port have you specified for incoming calls. And just to make sure (do you have a firewall, ISA 2000) And your permissions are they defined or to anonymous. I don't know if you are using PPTP, i once had that problem on a dial-up (ppp protocol)between Linux and windows for internet connectivity, you know protocols can be a hastle. Keep us informed, and give us more information on your scenario. It makes it easier to zero-in on troubleshooting (otherwise we are shooting in the dark.) Rgds Newton

    Windows XP Pro service pack 2 has the Windows firewall on by default. You need to set an exception to let it communicate with other computers. You can do this several ways, by port, by user, or by computer name, I believe. Good luck!
