I am a new administrator to Windows Server 2008 R2. I am trying to set up a VPN connection to my server with not much luck. Thus far I can connect to my server with a VPN PPTP connection but I cannot see any of the public files on my server or see any other resources on the lan. I have a dual port LAN card with one set to a static IP address connected to a cable modem. The other lan port is configured to obtain an IP address automatically and is connected to a wireless router/firewall that is then connected to cable modem. All of my other lan resources(workstations) are also connected to this router/firewall. The firewall is enabled on this wireless router. The cable modem is configured as a bridge -- in other words the firewall is turned off. At least that is what COMCAST explained to me. I installed Network Policy and Access Services Role and included,
- Network Policy Server
- Routing and Remote Access Services
- Remote Access Services
- Routing -- Health Registration Authority & Host Credential Authorization Protocol
The role successfully installed and I am getting "green" on the role status indicators. The server firewall is enabled but I wrote a netsh script to "firewall set portopening All" for ports 1723 and 47. I am using windows 7 VPN login using PPTP protocol and I am directing the VPN connection to the static IP addr lan port. Like I said I can successfully login into my VPN but I cannot see any of my network resources. I can also remote log in with no problems at all.
