Cannot establish VPN
« on: March 09, 2006, 07:48:39 PM »
I have established a VPN connection to my SME server before, but I'm obviously missing something now.  I have my PPTP clients set to 2 and have enabled VPN access for a couple of my users.  When I setup the VPN connection on an XP box and try to connect, the connection fails with error 619 on the XP box.  My SME messages log shows the following lines just before the connection is closed:

CTRL: Got a SET LINK INFO packet with standard ACCMs
GRE: read(fd=6,buffer=80559a0,len=8260) from network failed: status = -1 error = Protocol not available
CTRL: GRE read or PTY write failed (gre,pty)=(6,5)

I am using 6.01 in server only mode.  The network is behind a Linksys router and I have forwarded port 1723 to the SME box.  I also forward ports for email, http and https, all of which work properly.

Any suggestions would be appreciated,


edit:  Sorry, I meant to get this into the SME 6.x Server forum
