Routers / Switches :: How To Connect To VPN Using DynDNS
Nov 30, 2011
I recently moved out of state and have been working remotely. I just got a new internet provider who will not let me connect to my office VPN without a small business account which is ridiculous. I've been reading up on how to work around this and haven't been able to figure anything out. I've signed up for a dynDNS account but the truth is I have zero experience with this and don't know what I'm doing - most of the stuff I'm reading is a foreign language to me. I can log into my router and change settings and I can get VPN info from my tech person and work so I just need to know what to do. I can't really work effectively without access to my network but I refuse to pay for a small business account
How to successfully configure and connect to a DynDNS account with RVS4000? This was working fine for me until recently when I think I upgraded the firmware to 220.127.116.11.I am trying to connecting to DynDNS.org service. In the past, I used the following string for the Hostname which worked:'mysubdomain.domain.com&system=custom' (including small quotes)According to the RVS4000 documentation, all you should have to do is specify the host name with DynDNS but this clearly is not accurate.
I have a SR520 where WAN configured as PPPoE with Dyndns address. I have done all the configuration through the CCA, so far everything is working fine. But now i want to configure SSL VPN, but I have getting an error message : SSL VPN cannot be configured, please configure wan interface using a static IP address. Is there any way that I can configure the ssl vpn through a dyndns address?
The local router is behind a fiber firewall/router; the rvs4000's ext ip is thus 192.168.1.2, not visible from the net. The firewall/router is a dyn ip, with a dyn dns name mapping to it. The remote (some NetGear thing) is also dyn dns, but it is not behind a firewall.
I want to cook a vpn from the local lan subnet to the remote lan subnet.
It worked fine when both ends were NetGear.
I think it would be ok if somehow I could thell the rvs4000 that the local Security Gateway Type be just FQDN; it can't be IP+FQDN because the remote end doesn't know anything about that kind of thing; it can do IP or FQDN or a couple other confusing things.
I am using DynDNS in lieu of a static ip. My ISP changed my WAN ip last night as expected however the RV180W did not update the WAN ip, and so the router is now offline. Using a secondary internet connection I have logged into DynDNS.com and checked my hosts file and confirmed the ipa has not updated since March. I changed the update period from 360 to 2 so this never happens again, but I need to now change the WAN ipa in the RV180W to match the new one. I remember a screen that shows the current WAN ip address greyed out under the present one, but I dont recll where to go to get to that. I am at a loss as to where I go in the RV180W to change the WAN ip address.
Currently, I have a machine attached to the router that has a webserver and ssh (fedora linux). The ports are successfully forwarded (in this case, tcp 80, and tcp 22), and from outside of my network I can connect. Also, I use dyndns.com to provide a domain name, instead of using my IP. The dyndns account is NOT managed by the router.The server I am trying to connect to has a reserved IP address.My problem is that from inside of my network, using the dyndns domain name, I cannot connect to my site.
I just bought the WAG120N today, firmware version is v1.00.16. I've face a problem as subject, the following print screens show my configuration on router and DynDNS. I confirm the username and password is correct.Screen 1:
I've got two RV082's connected. Each has a dynamic IP (changes typically every few weeks). I've configured the tunnels on both ends with a local and remote "Remote/Local Security Gateway Type" of "Dynamic IP + Domain Name(FQDN) Authentication".If I look at the VPN Summary tunnel status, it shows an IP address of "mydomain.dyndns.org 0.0.0.0" under the "Remote Gateway" column heading. The Tunnel Test "Connect" button is N/A.I can resolve both of the mydomain.dyndns.org entries on both sides of each VPN using the Diagnostic DNS lookup tool within each router. If I hardwire a fixed IP address for the Local and Remote Gateway everything works just fine. VPN is good.
I just can't seem to get the "mydomain.dyndns.org" function to work. It appears the router can't resolve the dynamic IP from the domain names on each of the routers.
How do i connect two internet routers to one IP address range?I currently have one broadband router connected on 172.16.0.3 subnet 255.255.0.0, I have a second line which is a copper ethernet EFM 2Mb line connected using a Cisco 1800 router configured on 172.16.0.254 subnet 255.255.255.0, no DHCP is configured on either router. the dhcp is provided by a windows 2003 server on our LAN which is also configured on the same LAN IP range. if i connect the Cisco router into the same switch as the broadband router my network devices stop working and dont respond.
If i check the broadband router it shows all the connections to it as having the same MAC address as the Cisco router?? if i disconnect the Cisco router everything returns back to normal and works perfectly.What I want to achieve is to be able to run both routers on the same LAN to provide internet access by configuring the pc's to route through a specific router. the DHCP I want to stay routed through my original broadband line. at the same time i want all pc's to access to the lan devices (ie. servers and printers) what the correct configuration would be for the two internet routers would be?
I am trying to connect 2 wireless routers to expand my wireless signal. I want to connect the router 1 (in 2d floor) to a powerline av and then get the router 2 to the powerline (in the ground floor) so i can have wireless there too. I've tried some configurations i found online, but can't get to make the network functioning. The routers and powerline av are all dlink. I don't mind having 2 networks, but it would be better to have only one
I have a laptop connected to a net gear wireless router (for internet), but I am very close to buying a Belkin network USB hub to make my hard drive wireless, but this requires a router. I do not want move my hard drive to where my net gear router is, so I need to get another router, i am looking at a Belkin router so that I can make my hard drive wireless (This is the only reason for the router, it will not be used for internet) so I can keep my hard drive in the same place.
I am trying to portforward so I can host a server of a game I play, but whenever I try to connect to my default gateway it just times out and cannot load.I have done the cmd -> ipconfig/all and I found that my default is 192.168.0.1What do I do
I'm trying to access 192.168.0.1 to configure my linksys router to add new hardware to my home network but my browser (Safari) can not open the page - error message suggests 'server where this page is located isn't responding.
with a networking issue that I'm having with the 2nd computer I have trying to connect to the interntet via my Westell 7500 DSL router. I ran the diagnostic tool on the NIC to make sure it working correctly and it is, and so is the cable according the tools; I also verified that myself via unplugging/plugging the cable into the router and it detects eachMy other 2 computers work fine via the router.Here is the ipconfig info;Host Name:XXXXXXPrimary Dns Suffix: (blank)Node Type: HybridIP Routing Enabled: NoWINS Proxy Enabled: NoEthernet Adapter Local Area Connection:Connection-specific DNS suffix: (blank)Description: Intel(R) 82562V-2 10/100 Network ConnectionPhysical Address: 00-1D-09-8D-34-3BDHCP Enabled: Yes
First , I have installed the router and modem correctly , and i connected it to the switch , So the other devices connected to the internet but not connected to the workgroup so i can't share the files between the PC's ? Modem >>> Router >>> Switch >>> PC's
I have a Belkin Wireless G Plus MIMO Router and had no problems connecting to corporate in the past until several months ago. I can connect just fine if I bypass the router and connect to the modem. I also have no problem if I go to places like Subway. There is no problem with the wireless internet connection, only a problem when I try to connect to corporate through the VPN.
I have 4 computers on LAN using a router and I cannot see eachother, don't know how to configure the PCs. The router is set on DHCP for LAN, the PCs are using Windows 7 and can connect through the internet the router is providing (4 dells) but don't know how to set the computers to see eachother and to share files.
I'm having trouble trying to connect 3 computers via LAN for gaming using straight Ethernet cables and a net gear router. Only 2 computers seem to connect at a time. All 3 can connect to one another (one at a time) and the I.P. addresses have been set to 192.168.0.1 , 192.168.0.2 and 192.168.0.3. The cables work fine and the computers, but I'm wondering if I'm using the wrong kind of hub/router?
I try connecting to my Linksys wireless N router's setup but it doesnt even find the "site". I have tried pinging the router and i get no response, i have restarted the router and everything, It has never done this before.
