Cablecom and VPN

Dear EF,

Anyone have PPTP or OpenVPN running through a Cablecom home network?
I have spent enough time trying to get it working between home and work to now ask the form if there is a specific known limitation in place?

*BUT* I will still blame works firewall which I do not have legitimate admin rights on to make the checks of the logs.

I did get PPTP established once or twice only to drop nearly straight away.

Let me know what VPN setup you have running on cablecom, that would help me.

I have it running from FP50 using Linux PPTP.

Maybe you are using OpenDNS ?

Re: Cablecom and VPN

Hi jrspet,

Thank you for the post... interesting. The modem here maybe using opendns but I think I set it to googles 8.8.8.8 dns last time I was in that config section. I dropped opendns for googles dns after using the namebench tool:

Yes GRE.. I too have suspected that and thus started trying openvpn

oh, VPN works o.k. on the internal LAN to the linksys.. ah well, I will hack around with it some more when I have some down time.

Re: Cablecom and VPN

I strongly suspect you need to work on your VPN capable router. All the best.
