Thanks for the reply. I am trying to set up my VPN connection and am having some problems. On the Windows 2000 machine at home, I run the wizard to set up a VPN connection. It asks for the IP address of the server. Well the IP address of the server at the office is 192.168.0.2 which is an internal IP address that cannot be seen outside of the LAN (as I understand it). So I assume that there is an IP address associated with the broadband connection to the internet. I go to Google and do a search on "IP Address". The first page that I pull up runs a little utility that displays my IP addess - 126.96.36.199. Every computer in the LAN displays this same IP address when accessing this webpage. (the webpage is here
.) So I type in this IP address in the wizard and finish the wizard. I then setup my dial-up accress through my local phone company and dial into the internet. The internet connection is made so I try to access the VPN. I am prompted for a user Id and password so I type in the administrator user id and password and hit OK. Another window then pops up saying: Connecting to 188.8.131.52... After a short time, the following error is displayed below this:
Error 678: There was no answer
I am able to ping 184.108.40.206 from the dial-up connection.
I am using a router at the office. There is a disclaimer on the webpage mentioned above that the IP address will not be correct if you are using a router/proxy. If this is the case, how can I find my true IP address?
Any help is appreciated.
