VPN connection?

ford-freak, Dec 11, 12:15am
i have been trying to connect to my work and have tried creating a new connection and it fails to connect, I rung vodafone to see if they could help and they said it was a router setting but they would not help me as they don't support VPNs, is there an easy way to check settings? i have a hg250 wireless router and i can access the settings address thingee! i know limited stuff about computers so if anyone does know can they keep it kinda simple

um. . . . . . . . . vpn's are not my speciality indeed but I have a thought you may need to look at your firewall settings and also possibly port forwardin. . . . . .

my boss thought it might be a firewall and so i disabled them, and still nothing! might have a looksie at the port forwarding thingee

Are you using Cisco VPN? What error message are you getting from the client?
More importantly. . . seeing as you are a remote user, WHY do you not have an on call IT department?

You could try something else perhaps.
Logmein.com doesn't need port forwarding.

Can you ping the remote VPN Host?
Have you got the right IP or address in the VPN server selection?

Without knowing more about your VPN set up it is hard to really be of much help. VPNs vary so significantly from one to the next, some have special clients other use the windows VPN client.

Could you two guys please clarify; what is it you're trying to do? Are you trying to connect to a work VPN server?

What are you using to do this with? Your PC's/Laptops? What software? What OS are you using?

Can anyone else connect via VPN?

something is fishy about this thread

i can get it to go on my mums computer, so i know it is the right address and the instructions are clear, it just says it fails to connect. So it is on my side, and thats all i know! ! thanks evryone for trying to help
