I am not sure if I should be asking this kind of question on stackoverflow, so if not please be kind and point me in the right direction.
I am trying to connect my ec2 ubuntu 12.04 to a windows server via VPN. I followed the client setup here and that shows the following in ifconfig:
ppp0 Link encap:Point-to-Point Protocol inet addr:10.0.3.105 P-t-P:10.0.3.100 Mask:255.255.255.255 UP POINTOPOINT RUNNING NOARP MULTICAST MTU:1396 Metric:1 RX packets:46 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0 TX packets:9 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0 collisions:0 txqueuelen:3 RX bytes:3151 (3.1 KB) TX bytes:126 (126.0 B)
which I think means its up. But I can't connect to the mysql db on a local IP (within the VPN). I can connect from my mac at home but not from the ec2 server.
My question is, what am I missing?
