I am attempting to connect to my windows 2012 vpn server, through our Peplink Balance 305. For whatever reason I am getting conflicting ports that need to be opened and/or which method works best.
I have the windows firewall turned off on the server for testing and done the following to try and get this to work.
1st attempt : added the server to the servers inbound access section. then added the services to the machine on ports IP:47, TCP:1723 for PPTP and UDP:500, UDP:5500, UPD:1701 for IPsec
I am trying both just to see if we can even get connected, and we can’t connect to the server.
2nd attempt : added access rules to the firewall for the afore mentioned ports to the inbound rules list, and still no connection.
I am kinda at a loss as to why I can’t connect, as I said I am running a win2012 r2, nothing on it, firewall off. and straight to this Peplink device. I did some looking around and apparently there are different ports used depending on what software is used… do I have the right ports ? or am I missing something in the setup on the Peplink ?
Please any help would be great.
