I'm trying to set up a VPN between my laptop on my school's wireless network and my Linux server at home. The Linux server is the router for my home network. Here is a diagram of the situation...
LAPTOP <------> (School Network) <----> ((Internet)) <----> Linux Server <---> (Home Network)
I have set up a PPTP server at home (http://www.poptop.org
) and have turned on Dial-Up Networking and the VPN Adapter on Windows ME on the Laptop. I've set up a connection to home, and I believe it's all right. However, I get no response when trying to connect.
These are the only two lines in my pptpd.conf file:
localip 192.168.1.11 # The IP I want the laptop to get on the home network
remoteip xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx # My cable modem's IP address
Should I be allowing some more ports on the firewall on the Linux machine to allow a connection??
Thanks in advance for any help.
