Short answer, you cannot change the ip of the VPN interface, as it is being given to you by the oposite site. Given that 10.x is a class A network, you usually don't have a Class A network on both sides, which makes me wonder how you ended up with a class A network you're currently in. Either ask the opposite side to change their network, or change yours.

It could be a number of things, all very simple to solve... Most likely, it's a two fold firewall issue within OpenWRT and the end device's firewall... either you copied and pasted doubles, or your firewall config is improperly configured as not only are there two WANs (mentioned above), there's two VPNs (while you can run multiple servers and clients from ...

The problem was with the Virtual Network adapter. I was not able to repair it but by deleting it and using Soft Ether Client Manager to create a new one it works.

Yes, you would be OK using .2.x, and that would not cause any problems, however make sure your netmask is set to 255.255.255.0 and not 255.255.0.0 because it would try to mix your .2.x with your vpn .1.x as if it was the same network.

The 192.168.1.1 IP address used by many home routers is an IANA-reserved private network address or subnet. What's a subnet? An entire range of IP addresses that you can split up into a smaller ranger (the act of splitting it up is called subnetting) if you want. So the above range is 192.168.0.0/16. Keeping it simple without getting too much into the ...

You can use freely any Private Network Address. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Private_network RANGE 10.0.0.0 -- 10.255.255.255 172.16.0.0 -- 172.31.255.255 192.168.0.0 -- 192.168.255.255 Refer to RFC 1918 for background Keep in mind the Network address and Broadcast Network: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Host_address ...

Use rdp certificate authentication. @Scott Chamberlain described this http://superuser.com/a/750943/440206: Yes but you will need to install and configure your Remote Desktop Session host to use a Remote Desktop Gateway to do it. Once you are using a Remote Desktop Gateway you can set up Remote Desktop Connection Authorization Policies (RD ...

You could look into DirectAccess for secure access to your network: DirectAccess allows remote users to securely access internal network file shares, Web sites, and applications without connecting to a virtual private network (VPN). An internal network is also known as a private network or intranet. DirectAccess establishes bi-directional ...

Thanks to Robinson Zhang who addressed this issue back in 2008. His solution was to specify UseRasCredentials=0 in the VPN connection's PBK file.

That sounds to me like a driver or WinSocks issue. A few things to try: NOTE: these are generally safe to try so long as you know how to install system drivers. If you don't want to risk loosing your network connection completely you probably shouldn't run these without consulting IT Support. Reset WinSocks using netsh. This handy command is Microsoft's ...

I don't know about untangle but if you run your own OpenVPN server, you certainly can do this. When you enable client-to-client, the different openvpn clients will be able to talk to each other using the IPs provided by the VPN. By default, these IPs are assigned dynamically, but you can enable client-config-dir to setup a directory in which you can have ...

You can use a third-party software to bypass the NAT-limitations. I can recommend TeamViewer. By default it uses Port 80 (HTTP-Connections) outbound connections and works perfectly with NAT-Routers. Once installed on the target machine you can configure it to start up on Windows start and set up a permanent password. It's even possible to establish ...

You will not be able to setup any of the usual VPN softwares to work without a portforward somewhere, so I suggest either getting the admin password(link), or obeying their rules. Maybe an email to support can forward it for you, or open it up so you can administer it yourself.

I believe the Win7 computer has NLA enabled and because you are on a non-domain-joined machine, you are not able to access it (while the 2008R2 does not have this). You can read more here: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/types-remote-desktop-connections-allow#1TC=windows-7

Yes it is. For this to work, you need: A decent routing/gateway software running on W (I haven't done that on windows in 15 years, so I'll let you google this one) L needs a static route set up for the IP of C W needs a static route set up so that any requests for C coming in will get shoved into the VPN-network. The VPN client might take care of this ...

I believe ISP can block SSL connections. You can actually use the telnet program to test what works. See here for some examples: http://www.jmarshall.com/easy/http/

So in my initial research a number of posts suggested creating the VPN manually, although I only found instructions that worked with Windows 7 (not 8.1 which is what I'm running). The link below is to a forum post which turned out to include the steps required to get my configuration running. Point-to-Site on Windows 8 Client connection Error 798 I've also ...

Don't know why it doesn't work with Cisco Systems VPN Client, but it works with Shrew Soft VPN Client! :)

Yes, you can automate this using AppleScript. Here's a script I use: -- 1. Place in ~/Library/Scripts and enable the Applescript menu via the Applescript Editor -- (Or export to .app to run from spotlight.) -- 2. Substitute "vpn.example.com", "username" and "redacted" for your VPN server and password -- 3. Open Security & Privacy System Preferences, ...

You have to meet couple of conditions before you can RDP into your PC via internet. WIndows 8.1 Pro at the minimum on the system you will be connecting to Static IP or DynDNS with dynamic IP address. You can refer to the guide here for more info on setting it up: http://helpdeskgeek.com/networking/configure-router-for-remote-desktop/ I had exactly same ...

I don't think there is an easy way to do this on a mass scale. And you don't really mention the scope of these ssh connections. Terminal only? Might make things a bit easier. Run ssh -NR 2210:localhost:22 intermediaryuser@intermediary.remote.machine.tld as someuser on the machine behind the firewall. I'm assuming 2210 is available on the intermediary ...

I had the same issue and got this working thanks to @mehaase After creating the ~/vpn.sh as answered by @mehaase you can put this into a runnable application automator script using these steps: Using Automator create a new Application Add "Run an AppleScript" under Library > Utilities Enter: do shell script "sudo ~/vpn.sh" with administrator privileges ...

You must create a static route to the configuration. Select Advanced > Static Route The Destination IP Address and IP Subnet Mask fields specify that this static route applies to all 10.10.10.0 subnet mask 255.255.255.0 addresses. The Gateway IP Address field specifies that all traffic for these addresses are to be forwarded to the LAN at 192.168.23.1. ...

I solved the problem of this misterious error: It writes the message of the System Error 806 ("Access to the specified file handle has been revoked."), but it is actually a VPN Error 806: "A connection between your computer and the VPN server has been established but the VPN connection cannot be completed." Searching for that I realized, that I port ...

Thank you. I wish I could state what was wrong clearly in case it could help someone else but it was never clear to myself or the techs, though the network is back up now. That said, here's my best guess, hope it helps someone, specifically because things were made more difficult since the symptoms actually changed over time. I think the comcast modem may ...

Here is a great document on manually configuring a split tunnel on the system's side (if it's possible). You can control where your Windows PC sends it's traffic by creating routing rules on your system, and specifically controlling the interfaces that traffic to certain IP ranges leaves through. This is probably the best way to accomplish your goal without ...

Cisco VPN is known to cause similar issues. Chances are that this is just a Cisco VPN or Wi-Fi driver bug. Just go back to the version that used to work.

Can you post output of ipconfig /all and route print? For example to pastebin.com and paste links. What about ping? Is ping working? If yes it can be DNS. Next you can try ipconfig /flushdns, ipconfig /release and ipconfig /renew commands.

What's happening here is that the VPN client is setting your default gateway to the VPN server. This means that all your LAN-destined network traffic is routed through the VPN, and the VPN server will dump the traffic since it is for a private, non-routable subnet (likely 192.168.x.x). All you need to do is update your routing tables to send LAN traffic to ...

Simply configure the VPN to use a different port. Better still, you can do this with your router. Leave the NAS VPN port at 1194 and configure the NAT rule on the router to expose a different port externally, one that the ISP allows. Then configure the VPN client to that port. Alternatively, rather than using OpenVPN, simply use PUTTY to connect to SSH on ...

There are relevant log files in \WINDOWS\system32\LogFiles that may help. There is also system information available from the Event Viewer (Run > eventvwr.exe OR Control Panel > Admin Tools > Event Viewer) and look for System logs. However, both these locations could be empty depending on local settings. One can configure Windows firewall to log ...

Although it may be possible to achieve this, using Split Tunnelling, it will almost certainly break your terms and conditions of use for the work network. In extreme cases, you could lose you job over things like that. Remember that a VPN provides a secure link from your local machine or network to the remote LOCAL Area Network. This means that your machine ...

The short answer is that what you are asking for IS theoretically possible but not generally recommended as it is complex to achieve reliably. The long answer: As @Ramhound states, the main purpose of a VPN is to extend a remote LAN (Local Area Network) over an insecure WAN (Wide Area Network). This means that your local network (or when set up from ...

In DD-WRT go to Services --> VPN --> OpenVPN Client --> Policy Based Routing, add one line for each client whose traffic you want to route through the VPN tunnel, e.g. 192.168.10.20/32 192.168.10.21/32 ... As a result, the OpenVPN client no longer routes all traffic through the tunnel and hence also opens up the WAN again. I now have the VPN ...

If anyone else bumps into this: To create an IPSec tunnel with IKE protocol between Windows host* and a VPN service (Cisco ASA in my case) you have to set up a IP Security policy in Local Security Policy snap-in from your MMC.

I could be wrong, but if your external IP was the same, your actual requests to site probably didn't go through the VPN, but your DNS lookups may have hit your company DNS server. So xhamster.com, livejasmin.com, etc. will appear in any DNS logs, but not things like specific pages you were viewing. Sounds like your company may have implemented ...

PPTP can be blocked by ISPs because it (1) runs exclusively on port 1723 and (2) uses non-standard GRE packets which are easily identifiable. See PPTP on Wikipedia. The solution is using OpenVPN protocol instead of PPTP. Here's a tutorial by BestVPN that covers setting up OpenVPN on a linux VPS. There are increasing degrees of obfuscation that can make ...

I was able to correct this by un-intalling the TAP-9 network adapter in control panel, then reinstalling OpenVPN. I worked on this for days and was mot able to find much help on the net. Hope this might help you as well
