I have the basics down on the VPN, but I seem to have several problem. I have the 4 locations that I can hit, they route to one machine, I use different Ips however, all static. For instance, the first location has IP 10.0.0.2 to 10.0.0.19, next location has Ips, 10.0.0.20 - .29, then 10.0.0.30 to 39 and 10.0.0.40 to 49. In each location however, the router is always 10.0.0.1. The port 1723 is forwarded to the server with the incoming connection. I also forward port 137 for file and print sharing.
Here are the problems, sometime I log in successfully, but after I log out of the VPN, the host network is disconnected from the Internet, then they have to reboot the machines.
Also, I try to connect to the a file by path \\10.0.0.30\Shared and sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.
On top of that, I have questions:
do I need to have each location on a different IP scheme or Subnet Mask??
how about the router IP, each location has the same router IP?
How do i connect to the files I need?
All these questions would be greatly appreciated if they can be answered as soon as possible.
