I'm trying desperately to set up VPN on my windows server 200 r2. The server already has domain controller on it.
I go through the usual steps for example as shown here http://blog.thesysadmins.co.uk/server-2008-r2-pptp-vpn-with-1-nic.html However Im confused as to what IP address to use to connect from the clients. If i use the static range i put in i.e. 192.168.65.100 - 192.168.65.200 it just times out when I ping it from a client computer.
If i try and ping the IPv4 address shown from IPCONFIG on the server I just get Destination host unreachable.
I also just get a time out when I try and ping the external IP address of the server, found using whatsmyip.com.
In short in case you havent already guessed i'm a complete novice when it comes to setting up the vpn network and would really appreciate one of you experts to part ways with some of your advice :)
Thanking you massively in advance as I've wasted about a week on this!!!!
p.s. i've used 3rd party softwares like Logmein hamachi but Im experiencing no end of problems with them and their support forum doesnt reply to me at all.
