My first intention to setup a PPTP VPN, via my Linksys E2000 router with DD-WRT firmware, was to use an iPhone app while being connected to my home network from anywhere I have an internet connection. That is working. However I am finding out I cannot check my emails using my iPhone while it is connected to the VPN. But if I am not connected, I can check emails. My VPN client is my iPhone 4 running on iOS 6.1.2.
What could be causing this? Here is my PPTP VPN setup within my router:
pptp server: enable broadcast support: enable force mppe encryption: enable dns1: 22.214.171.124 dns2: 126.96.36.199 wins1: 188.8.131.52 server IP: 192.168.4.1 client ip: 192.168.4.10 Chap-secrets: username * password * Routing Table: LAN NET Subnet Mask Gateway Interface 192.168.4.10 255.255.255.255 0.0.0.0 ppp1 184.108.40.206 255.255.255.255 0.0.0.0 ppp0 220.127.116.11 255.255.255.255 0.0.0.0 ppp0 192.168.1.0 255.255.255.0 0.0.0.0 LAN & WLAN 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 18.104.22.168 ppp0
My router IP is 192.168.1.1
Other. Although these are enabled and set, it didn't make a difference if I shut them off or on. It works both ways. VPN passthrough: all 3 enabled ports forward: 1723 & 1792
