Hi there

I can't seem to connect using an SSL VPN using port 445 from the TCL network, yet I can from elsewhere.

Port scan of the remote ip from home shows 445 to be closed, yet an internet based scan shows 445 as open. Is TCL blocking 445 anywhere?? Any suggestions?

We should not be blocking any ports... Are you on cable (Inhome) or ADSL (PDQ )?

Sorry for the slightly late reply. I can confirm that we do not block any ports whatsoever, including 445. In other words, your problem must be elsewhere. Are you sure your VPN end-point/gateway does not filter based on source address?

Yes, this was the case. Thanks for ruling it out for me.
