more RV110W PPTP woes

FW = 1.1.0.1

PPTP = enabled

server IP = 192.168.0.1

pptp range = 192.168.0.90-94 (DHCP range starts at .100)

MPPE = off

Netbios = off

PPTP user = created and enabled

Passthru = all enabled

Coming in from work, can ssh to server inside, so basic setup and port forwarding work. Then tried pptp WinXP client from work. Win pptp client gives error 619, and the RV100W logs show

more RV110W PPTP woes

I recalled reading somewhere that Remote Managment had to be enabled for QuickVPN to work so I turned that on too (just in case). Now I can remote into the RV110w from work, but my WinXP PPTP still throws Error 619

Oh and the FW version is 1.1.0.9

Steve,

Have you attempted a PPTP connection from another location other than your work environment?

Also you can give us a call @ 1-866-606-1866 and open a support case. We can test your connection from our lab and verify if it's the router or configuration settings.

I called in this AM and got "Tori" and she tried from the lab. She was going to write up her findings here, but she tried to connect to antoehr person and we got disconnected. I hope she gets her info back to us

more RV110W PPTP woes

Steve,

I was able to consult with tori shortly and notice that you have a private IP address on your wan port (which usually needs to be public). I have had customer get PPTP to work with this type of configuration but it all dependant on your gateway routers configuration. With your current topology, since the RV110W isn't your gateway router we can't guarantee that your PPTP connection will be successful. In this type of configuration you will have to forwarding proper traffic inbound to the WAN address of the RV110w. The WAN address of the RV110w doesn’t need to be DHCP .If the WAN address of RV110W gets renewed then any forwarded traffic will not make it to its destination. Once you have the proper configuration in your gateway router. You should be able to initialize a PPTP connection to the RV110w.

NOTE: Since RV110W isn’t your GATEWAY ROUTER we can’t guarantee that PPTP connection will function as expected.

If you are able to modify gateway router forwarding settings and then test PPTP connections and let me know if you are successful in getting connected via PPTP

Thanks,

Re: more RV110W PPTP woes

My ISP (http://www.hbci.com/residential/data/air ) uses this (http://ubnt.com/rocketdish) on my roof to provide our broadband connection. The RV110W is behind it. I have had a heck of a time convincing them that port forwarding cannot be done via DHCP for the very reason you say, how can you know the server will always get the IP that the port is forwarded to? They counter that you can forward a single port (like 22) to multiple IPs. [I did not think so either, despite providing Wikipedia links on port forwarding that say what you say.]

However, when I nmap the ISP provided public IP I get the below. Since ssh, http and https all work (Tori used Remote Admin) why does pptp fail? Does 1723 have to be forwarded to a different IP then the ssh and http stuff?

Interesting ports on 8.24.106.38:

Not shown: 1649 closed ports

PORT     STATE    SERVICE

22/tcp   open     ssh

25/tcp   filtered smtp

53/tcp   open     domain

80/tcp   open     http

135/tcp  filtered msrpc

139/tcp  filtered netbios-ssn

443/tcp  open     https

1723/tcp open     pptp

1755/tcp open     wms

more RV110W PPTP woes

Steve,

Normally depending on the situation- I would set up a static-DHCP map - In our router this is the binding of IP Address and Mac address that you want the DHCP server to give to a certain device. So when the RV110W asked the DHCP server for an address it would give the same address you assigned in the static-dhcp-map section. Now the other way is to set up the STATIC IP address in the RV110W so you would basically pick a address that you want the RV110W to have and assign it(ip-address,subnet-mask,default-gateway,and dns servers). This should be able to communicate with the gateway router. That being said you would need company who manages the Gateway router and have the forward all port to the address you specific on the RV110W Wan interface.

Example:

Gateway router

Public IP address  86.456.21.51 (giving by ISP)     

Local Lan (private) address of gateway router

192.168.100.1

RV110W

Wan address

IP - 192.168.100.50--- Subnet -255.255.255.0--- Gateway – 192.168.100.1

In your gateway router you would have them to forward all ports or specified ports to wan interface of our router @ 192.168.100.50 (This address is what i specified as an example)

address will reflect actual ip address you set.

This is an example of how sending all service ports to an internal private address of the RV110W

Hope this helps,

more RV110W PPTP woes

OK, the ISP must be doing something like this already. As I point out, ssh/http/https all work and we can use Remote Admin on the RV110W (as Tori did). The ISP claims 1723 is also sent to the same IP as the former ports. Since I have no access to their device, I have to believe them. Yet PPTP fails, while everything else works.

???

Steve,

They will need to make sure that PPTP pass-through enabled

usually on routers we have vpn pass-through group together like example below.

this is the last thing we can check,

Jason;

I found this page for the ISP's router http://wiki.ubnt.com/AirOS_5.3

There are several places they mention pptp pass through in it. Where do you think the real setting shoud be changed?
