I need some assistance, I have a RV082 and works for the most part pretty well, the problem I have is with a PPTP connection, It will connect and get an IP address on the inside network but I cannot go anywhere on the network except for the gateway IP, so here is what I have:
Windows 7 enterprise workstation, connected to my home network going out through Comcast, conecting to ATT's network and to the RV082, I start the PPTP connection on my workstation at home, it checks the password and issues an IP and makes the connection, I can ping the gateway address of the inside network at the remote location but cannot ping any devices on the inside network,
More information: I can make a VPN connection with Cisco quick VPN software and everything works fine, I can get to all inside devices on the remote network, so I know that the complete path works under certain conditions.
One thing I may be missing, is the RV082 a PPTP server or do I need to have a PPTP server on the inside of my remote network to complete the circuit ?
The RV082 is a PPTP server but it does need to be configured correctly. Please make sure your PPTP setting are fine. I would try the PPTP connection from another remote computer to verify it isn't Windows7 enterprise work station.
It might be best to give Cisco Small Business Support Center a call @ 1-866-606-1866 and open a support case. We can assist you with trouble shooting the router. Get a better understand on your topology, and also test PPTP connections from our lab.
