pptpd vpn on SuSE: All users can login but only two user could reach to network behin
 
Dear all,


I have POPToP vpn server installed on SuSe, let say i have 10 users and all those user could login to my server at the same time but only two user could use ! the rest could not reach network that want to talk to.

Where could i check? and when i issue 'ifconfig ' command it show only two ppp (ppp0 and ppp1) . it doesn't create for other connection.

Your help please!

thanks,

iKhmer

This can happen if the ip addressing at their home network conflicts with either the ip addressing behind the vpn, or the one used by the vpn. I had this happen with a few clients, and didn't realize what was happening until determining what their home network was set to.

In my case, the work network used the 192.168.2.0/24 subnet, which was the same as my client's home network. so he could connect just fine, but when trying to reach the company server 192.168.2.2, nothing would happen. The reason was that according to his routing tables, 192.168.2.0/24 is a local subnet. So even setting the VPN server as the default gateway didn't work in this case. The solution was to set a route that would send all packets destined to 192.168.2.2 directly to the VPN server.

still could not short this out! and client network is not the same network behind vpn server...
could you please give me a bit detail on routing or firewal fitering in this case? i think it could be the source of problem but i don't know whr to check or change :-(

Many thanks,

:confused:
