I canít establish any VPN connection between WinXP and BEFVP41.
Win XP is on a dynamic Comcast IP, but BEFVP41 has a static Verizon IP, and is located behind a DSL modem which is bridged.
Iím aware of the article #207 on Linksys help page, and finally the BEFVP41 was configured with a help of one of theirs technicians!
NOTHING WORKS! HEEEEEEEELP!
Did anybody go through this setup?

Hi Trianero,

I'm not really sure I follow with this; but you could provide some more information by doing the steps below.

Goto Start, Run, type CMD, press 'OK' and then type: IPCONFIG /ALL - please post the results here by right-clicking on the Command Prompt window, selecting 'Select All', pressing Ctrl+C, and then posting on this forum.

Basic Checklist for Networking
1. Ensure that all firewalls are disabled for all computers involved.
2. Ensure that all computers on the network are in the same workgroup.
3. Ensure each computer has "file and printer sharing" installed.
4. Ensure that you have 'File Sharing' enabled - to do this, right-click on any Drive/Folder/File on one (or all) of the other computers, and select 'Sharing and Security...'. Ensure that 'Share this folder on the Network' is enabled.

Test your Network
1. Goto Start, Run, type: NETSH DIAG GUI - press 'OK'. A Command Prompt window will open temporarily; don't touch it, it will disappear in a moment.
2. A Microsoft Help and Support window will then open; select the option 'Scan your system'.
3. Wait for the scan to finish and then scroll down to the heading 'Modems and Network Adapters'. Look at 'Network Adapters' (don't expand it yet). Beside your connection information, you should see a green 'PASSED'; if you do not (if you see a red 'FAILED') then expand 'Network Adapters', scroll down the list until you see the heading with the 'FAILED', expand that option and copy and paste the results here.
In the NETSH DIAG GUI, you should be looking for any red 'FAILED', however the key one is Network Adapters for you. If you see any other red FAILED, expand the component and copy the results.

Could you also go into a little more detail with your current problem... ie: Steps you have taken, what you're trying to achieve, why, etc..

Thanks,
Dan.

Hi Dan,

Please find attached a jpg file and the scenario we are trying to achieve.
All applications will be on the work stations, but the data base on the server in the office.
I thought that VPN will be the way to go.

1-4 All of them are OK

Test your Network
