when I connect to the server 2003 vpn it authenticates and everything goes fine. When I do a traceroute to google.com I get:
Tracing route to google.com [126.96.36.199]
over a maximum of 30 hops:
1 111 ms 109 ms 110 ms ******* [192.168.2.2]
2 * * * Request timed out.
3 * * * Request timed out.
4 * * * Request timed out.
The server is set up with two NIC's. the "server local area connection,192.168.2.100" and the "local area connection,192.168.2.2".
Without the local area connection the server doesn't get outside the lan. I think this is what is happening, but why I'm getting the same IP on the VPN as the server's local area connection I don't know.
My boss set this one up and I'd rather not use the Windows server anyway.
I really am just wondering if this is a normal thing for a certain type of VPN setup. I wanted to have it act sort of like a proxy, all my traffic, web browsing and such would be routed through the server at work.
As far as my reasons for wanting all this is mostly to encrypt the traffic when I'm at school. The school's system is setup where I need to log into a website to do work in class. The password to log into the site is the same username and password that gives access to my financial info in the schools system. Since the wifi isn't encrypted someone could sniff the airwaves and capture my password. I know, it's unlikely, but better safe than sorry.
An ssh tunnel would probably work fine. I just can't figure out how to get all traffic routed through it.
Thanks for the help.
