Hi! I've recently installed PPTPD on my Ubuntu Box. I have few problems/questions:
1.) When I connect using Windows 2K, I get a different IP (not within my local network subnet). To illustrate, I have eth0 184.108.40.206 (Static IP provided by my ISP) and eth1 (192.168.0.201 local network). I got 192.168.1.1 and it seems the PPTP server has a 192.168.1.2 IP. I can't ping workstations in our local network!
2.) Is it possible for me to connect thru the PPTPD server using the dial up and gain internet access? Is it this the same configuration with the PPTP? WHich means I will also be using PPTPD to achieve it? My goal is to connect my home PC to our office having the same IP with the local network. As if I'm just sitting beside the server and have an internet access
3.) Which is better OpenVPN or PPTPD? I am wondering which is safer..
I've been writing a lot about this VPN and I want to make it work. So if anyone there can help me I will be very much grateful. Thanks.
I was referring to VPN. I'm not very familiar with PPTP as I don't have dialup or DSL. VPN networks I've seen have each remote site on a different subnet. Traffic destined for a remote site are then routed through the VPN tunnel. A flat network would cause a lot of unnecessary broadcast traffic to travel through the tunnel.
