    VPN: can connect but ip not correctly issued....

    I tried to connect to the school network via our VPN connection, I am the only one who does this.

    I normally connect and then use VNC to gain access to my desktop.

    Last night I connected OK to the network but VNC kept timing out.

    I looked at the results from ipconfig and noticed that my ip address which should have been on my domain range 10.7. was not - this seems to be the issue but what could be the cause?

    Any ideas please on how to troubleshoot this one?
    Thanks.

    everything looks fine i think.

    one difference is the ip address of my pc at home.
    one is the version of RAS I am running at home as I've upgraded to w7.

    I think I will try from one of my XP laptops tonight and see if something is maybe not setup right with my w7 - strange that it connects OK though.
    What is responsible for issuing it with the correct ip.


    The remote access policy on the server states:
    "Server settings determine ip address assignment"

    Thought maybe it was a dhcp issue but have checked and we have 23% available of the scope.
    Not sure what else I could check in dhcp....

    I used www.logmein.com, it's free. It puts a little bit of software on the server. Then I use a VNC from the server to get to other machines.

    checked everything against this guidance:

    DHCP and Remote Access

    and everything is set up correctly.

    In DHCP should I see a list of address reserved for RAS?

    I've restarted the DHCP service and lo and behold the RAS entries have returned

    What's all that about ?

    Will try dialling in again tonight and report back tomorrow....
