Unhappy Hardware Point to Point VPN
At the Auburn site, they are on ATT DSL using a TP-LINK TD-W8960N Wireless N ADSL2+ Modem/VPN Router ( that replaced the standard 2WIRE modem/router/WiFi which did not support VPN ) that supports IPSec, PPTP/L2TP and SSL VPN. This unit is connected directly to the ATT DSL line.
The IP info is:
IP 192.168.1.101 ( on the computer that needs the VPN )
Sub 255.255.255.0
Gate 192.168.1.1
DNS 192.168.1.1

External IP 64.30.111.117


At the Mather site, they have a D-Link DIR130 VPN Router that is connected to a Fiber Modem in Bridge mode, so it should be passing everything through to the router ( so says Sure West ) which supports IPSec, PPTP/L2TP and SSL VPN.

The IP info is:
IP 192.168.1.103
192.168.1.104
192.168.1.105
192.168.1.106
192.168.1.108 ( these are the DATA server in Auburn )
Sub 255.255.255.0
Gate 192.168.1.1
DNS 192.168.1.1

External IP 70,235,45,150

I have tried IPSec with no results.
From what I read it should work easily.
Should I be using one of the other versions of VPN ?
Are there hidden things I need to setup ?

Both ask for the IP address to be stated as 192.168.1.103/24 ( example ). I donít know what the /24 part is, I assume something to do with the Subnet but not sure and canít seem to find anything on it.

IPSec setting
Have tried both Site-to-Site and Remote user, both in the IPSec section.
Should I be trying one of the other sections ( PPTP/L2TP or SSL VPN ) ?

What did you configure in your IPSEC settings?

SHA-1, MD5, AES, 3DES, DH Group (1, 2, or 5), etc, etc. So what did you configure?

Left the advance settings at their defaults as the instructions said to do,, unless you knew how to alter them, which I don't.
Do you have any suggestions for the settings ?
