VPN through a Router

VPN through a Router

VPN through a Router

I'm sure there is a more appropriate forum for my question - but I can't find it!

I have a small workgroup - connected via a DLink router.
I have a work laptop, running Windows 7 Business that I use VPN to connect to the office.
My router wants to block this access.
How can I open up a path that allows my laptop to connect to the VPN via the router?


RE: VPN through a Router

It's a DLink DIR-655.


RE: VPN through a Router

I think I have it resolved...
I went in to advanced settings - virtual server I think?? and set up PPTP and IpSec as 'applications' - assign the laptop/IP address, and it seems to work.
