Windows Server 2012 PPTP Server
« on: October 18, 2015, 03:29:00 pm »
Hello,
Need some advice here.

I need to port forward PPTP ports and I am having an issue doing so.
I have a PPTP server on a Windows Server 2012 R2 on the LAN port.

Current Setup:
WAN: Public IP Address
LAN: 10.0.2.xxx

I put the rules for both PPTP and GRE but I cannot access the VPN.

I put the source as the "WAN net" and the destination as the "LAN net".
Is there something I am missing?

Let me know what else you need to know

Thanks

Yes,
I know. It is hackable

I use it for LAN gaming only between me and my buds houses.

It's not just insecure. It's also completely broken with NAT. Utter waste of time. Seriously.

Thank You

JFC dude you clearly have pfsense, why not create a site to site vpn with openvpn or ipsec for that matter to your buddies house if you need stuff from his network to talk to your network..  That 2k12 even still has pptp support is just beyond stupid on MS part if you ask me...

Pretty sure pfsense drops it next version as well, should of been dropped quite some time ago just like they dropped the stupid ftp helper that wasn't doing anyone any favors helping the stupid continue to use antiquated services.
