I have run into a problem with my VPN.
At home i have set up a test lab. I Have a server running VMware ESXi and vCenter server, so in my internal network i connect to the vCenter server to manage the ESXi host. I looked up the ports vSphere uses and forwarded them. From a external network i can log into my vCenter server but if i try to open a console it says cant connect MKS on 192.168.1.151:902. But i already forwarded port 902 to the vCenter server on 192.168.1.150.
As a solution i thought of VPN so i add a role to my AD server, in the role network en routing i setup VPN and i could connect to it with my laptop.
The Problems: I can connect to my VPN by PPTP but i cant ping into my internal network (say ping 192.168.1.150 (vCenter server) i get a timed out.
What i tried: First i saw that my ip address set by PPP did not have a gateway and subnet but did have a valid IP address in the right range. So i set the values manually but no success. Then i tried turning off all firewalls (on the servers and my laptop) but no success. Then i set a check on send al traffic through VPN on my MacBook no success. I checked the permissions on the server and it seems ok (i'm Administrator). Last i searched this forum and tried a bunch of possible solutions but no success
So i hope i explained my problem correctly so you guys can help me.
