Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I have a server set up for work files and backups. It is a diskstation with the latest DSM (4.2) on it. I have a vpn setup with port 1723 forwarded properly. It has an external IP that I can access the UI from (on port 5000) perfectly. I can access the VPN locally by using the internal IP address, but I have been unable to set a manual IP to connect to it from either a local or a remote ip. All I want to do is connect to the IP from a mac computer, through AFP, but I cannot figure out how. I don't know enough to know where this is PPTP problem, or if I don't even need to the vpn.

Ask me any clarifying connections. Thanks for the help guys.
