VPN over DSL

VPN over DSL

VPN over DSL

I am trying to enable a home to office VPN using DSL.  At the office I am running NT server 4.0 with RAS and PPTP enabled.  I have a router with the appropriate ports opened.  I think everything is right on the server end.  At home I have a windows 98 client with a 4060 usb dsl modem.  I have installed microsoft VPN adapter on the client.  When I try to connect it says that the adapter is already in use. Is it possible to do this without another router at home.  IF IT IS CAN SOMEBOODY PLEASE HELP!


RE: VPN over DSL

You do not need a router at your home location. All you need is access to the internet. If your DSl modem gets you to the internet your just about there.

Check out the following link. It may help



RE: VPN over DSL

the dsl modem is the way to go at the home location . as abovebrd indicated . Just a thought , What other pragram do you have on your pc ( winpoet 2.0 , Earthlink 2.4.1 ect ) ? I'm wondering if this could be causing the conflict .
