VPN and NT 4.0 with dsl

VPN and NT 4.0 with dsl

VPN and NT 4.0 with dsl

Ok, dumb question.  Have DSL, pdc and bdc and firewall.
bought the VPN module for the firewall.  Can create a tunnel to the firewall and see the login screen.  That's all.

Want to have VPN setup to the network from remote workstations.  I know I need PPTP on one of the servers.  Can it be the bdc.  Also, do I need to install RAS.  I only have one NIC in each server.  Do I need two?

Not sure what to do next.  Any help would be appreciated

RE: VPN and NT 4.0 with dsl

Which Firewall?
What protocols does the VPN 'module' support?

I may misunderstand, but it seems to me that running (R)RAS or PPTP would be redundant to the firewall's VPN functionality.

RE: VPN and NT 4.0 with dsl

Using Sonicwall firewall software version 5.1.1.  I can do a tunnel and see the firewall logon screen.  Can't seem to logon.  Do I need to logon to get into the network.  In other words, do I need to create users in Sonicwall for VPN connections?

RE: VPN and NT 4.0 with dsl

First you need to open up port 1723 on the firewall and and point it to the IP of your RAS server(running pptp).  You also have to have PPTP protocol enabled on the firewall.  I dont know if this will help, but that is how I set it up.  Then to connect your client will punch in the ip of the firewall, and the firewall will redirect you to your PPTP server.  Make sure you are running NAT on your firewall.
