Solved: port forwarding a vpn
Hi all i have been trying for some time to port forward a vpn though my router but i do not want to use a vpn. currently i am out so i will post the router type when i get home. dose anyone know how to do this with a form of a netgear router. i have tried many times and it seems to not work. i don't know if the problem is with the router because when i am on my home network i can get it with my internet ip address just fine but when i go else were where i know i can get a vpn because i can use others vpn's i cant get to mine. any ideas would be helpful.

Why are you trying to port forward for a VPN if you don't want to use one? What are you actually trying to do?

You need to enable VPN pass-through in the router.

The caveat for port 1723 is that it's for PPTP. For IPSEC, there are other ports involved. IP ports 50 and 51. UDP port 500 and UDP port 4500. If you're using a Cisco client you're also looking at TCP 10000.
